Managing API Contracts and OpenAPI Paperwork at Scale


Cisco DevNet presents at API Days Paris 2023

12 months after 12 months, this international occasion for API practitioners will get larger. This 12 months the occasion was held within the newly renovated CNIT Forest – a central and simple to affix location within the Paris La Protection enterprise space.

As a sponsor of API Days Paris, Cisco DevNet – Cisco’s developer program – provided a sales space the place we interact 100+ conversations with attendees and mentioned methods to construct and publish sturdy APIs, sharing our expertise driving API High quality and Safety initiatives. (We additionally had the chance to satisfy and, for a few of us, play chess with Laurent Fressinet, the two-time French Chess Champion, and ‘second assistant’ with opening preparation throughout Magnus CarlsenWorld Chess Championship matches. However that’s a distinct story.)
