At October’s Homegrown Austin API Meetup, we had the treat of hosting two API professionals from around the world: Mehdi Raza, Code Gen Wizard at APIMatic, from Islamabad, Pakistan. And John Chavez, Senior Software Developer at Bandwidth, Inc., based in Raleigh, North Carolina.
It was a great meeting of the minds, as our speakers helped us uncover the API strategies and best practices behind the following industry trends:
- Best practices for creating SDKs that enhance your API’s overall developer experience
- The value of automation pipelines
The Austin Homegrown API Meetup takes place the third Thursday of each month at ShipEngine, located at 4009 Marathon Boulevard in Austin. If you’re interested in joining us, we encourage you to sign up for our group’s distribution list to get updates about our upcoming events.
If you missed us last month, we’ve put together this post just for you. Below you’ll find the videos and transcripts of both presentations from Oct. 17th:
