In January we presented our 1st online training, looking at API Design and use of Apiary and Swagger. Things went well until near the end where for some reason voice and video dropped for no apparent reason. Our coordinator Lindsay kept the recording going and soon as we reconnected I continued the session and went through the Q&A.
So if you missed the end of the training, please do check back with the recording.
If you missed the training – we’ll be rerunning in March – go here.
For those on the training will have seen at the start of the training links to my social media profile, so happy to try to respond to any further questions.
We are also scheduled to run the session again in a month or so.
One of the questions received during the session I thought worth mentioning was when would Apiary support Open API 3.0. Well according to their blog very soon, looking forward to it as the OAS 3 does look a little cleaner.
If you like seeing or hearing people like Arturo Viveros, Luis Weir and myself (not for me :-0 ) discussing OMESA.io (Open Modern Enterprise Software Architecture) and APIs then you’ll like the following video, recorded with Bob Rhubart of Oracle Developer Community ArchBeat fame at Oracle Open World 2017.
So, I’m not a great fan of things like the World Economic Forum (WEF) – unlike TED it appears to be overtly political (and an opportunity for big business to lobby governments) rather than pure presentation ideas and innovation. That said, last week at Oracle’s Digital Transformation conference I did see a couple of videos produced by WEF that really got some messages across.
I came across the this video which does a good job of providing a technical overview of the Angular.js framework that is gaining a lot of attention, and uptake.
Although the video is 70 minutes long it is actually made up of several sections, the start points of which are:
- Getting Started – Single Page Application (SPA) Intro 4:38
- Download & very basic SPA 8:13
- Directives, Filters and Data Binding 9:36
- Views, Controllers and Scope (MVC pattern) 24:00
- Modules, Routes & Factories 31:06
- Demo of the features introduced 1:03:28
- Summary 1:08:52
