  • 4. API Portfolios for Everyone

    Vaughn and John discuss API portfolios and the increasing number of APIs being made available for public consumption. From John's deep knowledge and background in APIs, the timeline of early to contemporary technologies is considered for perspective. From there, they discuss monetization of strategic APIs using his innovative HyperCurrent product. In their dialogue, API First, REST, GraphQL, gRPC, asynchronous message-based and event-driven, the future of APIs and API products, as well as using APIs while applying DDD are covered. It's an opportunity to tap the knowledge of a long-time API design and tools expert.John D'Emic is the CTO and Co-Founder of HyperCurrent, the leading Enterprise API Monetization Platform. He is an architect, full-stack developer, and author with over 20 years of experience.

  • 3. AI That Actually Works (and With Ethics, Even!)

    Vaughn discusses generative AI with Cassidy Williams (@Cassidoo) regarding the SaaS AI product that she and her team have developed. They cover the challenges of generative AI that supports accuracy in content repurposing, such as: customers don't want content generated as a talk transcript with all images from the speaker's slide deck. Customers want the talk repurposed to contain the most salient points and related images that are suitable for, e.g., a blog post. What qualifies software as an AI, and what tools can help software engineers make the leap to AI application development? The two also discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of ChatGPT, and how ethical companies can develop AI products with trustworthy ethics.Read our Contenda-generated blog post "Reactive DDD Modeling Uncertainty" and try Contenda for yourself at:

  • 1. Writing Patterns for API Design

    With several great books on API design already on our shelves, this one stands out as a hefty pattern language and catalog for API designers. It's chock full of about everything you could need to design an industrial-strength API. Our discussion steps through the pattern writing process, including working as a team of five industry and academic professionals. Learn insights from one of the book's co-authors and pattern writers—a software industry practitioner—including his favorite and most challenging pattern in the book.Daniel Lübke is a Software and Business Process Architect working at Digital Solution Architecture GmbH in Hanover, Germany. He received his PhD in Software Engineering in 2007. Since then he is working as a consulting and coding software architect in client projects. He is one of the contributors to the API Pattern collection, author and editor of several books and other publications, and is frequently sharing his experience in conference talks and lectures.
  • 8. Viewpoints: Software Development's Future

    What has changed in the software industry from 20 years ago and five years ago, and what might trends indicate about the future? Consider what developers use over and over again, year after year: programming languages, databases, testing, deployment, and operations. How can we improve developer experience with advanced programming language features, atomic and long-running transactions, and DevOps/SRE? Gazing into the future possibilities with Lev and Vaughn is fun and engaging.
