Optimizing 3 Babies

Optimizing for the Speed of Light

It is true three women can’t make a baby in 3 months, but it also doesn’t take 27 months for them to have 3 babies! You might be wondering what on earth I am talking about but this is something I see API developers getting confused about regularly. There is oft-repeated guidance that if an API […]

OpenAPI is not what I thought

Sometimes I do my best thinking in the car and today was an excellent example of this.  I had a phone call today with a the digital agency Authentic who have been hired to help you stop saying Swagger, when you mean OpenApi. I’m only partially kidding. They asked me some hard questions about why I got involved in […]

Http

HTTP Pattern Index

When building HTTP based applications we are limited to a small set of HTTP methods in order to achieve the goals of our application. Once our needs go beyond simple CRUD style manipulation of resource representations, we need to be a little more creative in the way we manipulate resources in order to achieve more […]

Restful API

Back to my core

I’ve spent a large part of the last two years playing the role of a technical marketeer.  Call it developer advocate, API Evangelist, or my favourite title, API Concierge, my role was to engage with developers and help them, in any way I could, to build better HTTP APIs.  I have really enjoyed the experience […]

Azure API Management

Azure API Management Resources

Although I know my HTTP and Web API pretty well, becoming an API Evangelist on the Azure API Management team means also needing to know the nitty gritty of the Azure API Management product too.  In my learning process I have discovered a wealth of useful information, but it is scattered around a little.  Some is on the Azure documentation site, some on […]

Some of the questions we attempted to answer this week include: Links from the show include: Keep your eyes on our twitter accounts @darrel_miller and @gblock for the […]

In The Mood For HTTP – Open Q&A

As a software developer today it is pretty difficult to avoid working with HTTP in some capacity.  There also seems to be a growing desire among developers to get a deeper understanding of the protocol.  Recently Glenn Block and I decided it might be interesting to do a online Q&A about HTTP and try and answer developer […]

API Discovery

Distributed Web API discovery

The site apisjson.org defines a specification for creating a document that declares the existence of an API on the web.   This document provides some identification information about the API and links to documentation and to the actual API root URL.  It also supports pointing to other resources like API design metadata documents and contact information for maintainers […]

Web API Cookie Cutter

The Simplest Possible ASP.NET Web API Template

I recently needed to create a new Web API project for some content I’m working on for a talk.  I decided I might as well use the ASP.NET Web API Template to get started. The resulting project looked like this: 75 class files, 23 Razor templates, 34 unique Nuget packages, and 28 Javascript files before I wrote […]
