By 2010 the API sector began to grow up, focusing more on API management, then eventually shifting towards a design first mentality by 2015, which highlighted the importance of mocking, testing, as well as documenting your APIs. In 2018, all of this is now coming into focus as a more coherent, collaborative approach to delivering APIs consistently across a known API lifecycle. More API teams are finding that design, mocking, documenting, testing, and iterating on your APIs before you ever begin actually developing and deploying code is the sensible way to deliver APIs today. I'd like to share one perspective of a modern API lifecycle, and talk about how API definitions are playing a central role in driving development, while also contributing to measuring, reporting, and governing how APIs are delivered across distributed groups, to ensure API infrastructure is supporting web, mobile, desktop, device, and network applications as expected, at a web scale.
