Andreas Krohn – Dopter. Nordic APIs World Tour 2015: May 11 – Copenhagen. As a product APIs are both different and similar to other types of products. In some ways an API is just like any SaaS product. But in some ways an API as a product has it’s very own set of challenges and opportunities. In this presentation Andreas Krohn goes through the entire lifecycle of an API, from ideation to production to retirement. He compares the API lifecycle to other product lifecycles and highlights important focuses for API providers to consider when publishing their APIs.

Modularity is an architectural theme that you’ll hear about more and more. Being able to deal with change in a codebase is not something trivial and requires some serious thought. In this presentation you will learn how to create modular, robust, and durable enterprise Java applications fit for the Cloud Age. Using a modular development approach with Java, OSGi, and a wealth of open source components, you will be shown how to combine these into coherent applications without locking into one of the existing PaaS providers. Finally, we will focus on deployment, introducing Apache ACE, that allows to centrally manage and distribute software components to target systems in the cloud or on premise. Of course everything will be demonstrated using live coding!
ASP.NET 5 is a lean and composable framework for building web and cloud applications. ASP.NET 5 is fully open source and available on GitHub. In this technical talk The Lesser Scotts will put it all into context. What does that ASP.NET 5 mean for compatibility? What powerful new cloud scenarios does ASP.NET 5 enable? We’ll cover ASP.NET 5 both inside and outside the IDE, on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
