3scale makes it easy to open, secure, distribute, control and monetize APIs, that is built with performance, customer control and excellent time-to-value in mind.
This is my online domain where I work to understand the world of the Application Programming Interfaces, also known as APIs. This new way of sharing data using the web is touching almost every aspect of our increasingly digital lives, providing access to the bits and bytes that make our personal and professional worlds go round.
This is my research specifically into webhooks and how they are being used make APIs more real time, and a two way street. Webhooks are a reverse API call, instead of the consumer calling the platform, the platform is calling the consumer. I'm trying to understand this fast growing layer of API space and establish some common patterns others can consider.
API Evangelist is a network of data driven projects and APIs which I curate and manage as part of this ongoing research, hoping to provide easy access to the moving parts of my work. Everything you see here runs on Github, making everything forkable, and reusable for both humans and machines.
