What a world cup! I do feel bad for 50% of the MuleSoft team though (given that we’ve got a big office in Buenos Aires). It’s exciting though, because this was a very exhilarating competition that truly reached a fever pitch here in the US where “football” is traditionally a game with pads, helmets, and ball that doesn’t really roll.
What was really interesting was how this was truly a, “World Cup powered by APIs.”
Tackling API development with an API first approach allows companies to focus on designing APIs to deliver business, rather than focusing on the nuts and bolts of implementing those APIs. With API first design, businesses can create an application programming interface optimized for adoption and once finalized, use a platform to rapidly implement it by connecting it to backend services.
How quickly can you enable OAuth on an API and allow for client applications to be rapidly built for them? With the new OAuth 2.0 policy that is now available with the Anypoint Platform for APIs, the answer is no more than five minutes! Have a look for yourself with the following viewlet:
The rising popularity of APIs as an architectural and development pattern has driven a massive shift in how we think about application and systems design; but how are we thinking about APIs themselves? As API adoption increases, we need to learn how to mitigate risk, maximize utility, and ensure we are building the right APIs for the right people.
