This half-day tutorial introduces Protocol Buffers, gRPC, and the open source tools that Google uses to publish and support some of the world's biggest APIs. We'll show how the Protocol Buffer language allows APIs to be described, reviewed, and implemented in a programming-language independent way, how gRPC enables high-performance streaming APIs, and how \ a few simple conventions can enable related tools to serve robust REST APIs and generate production-quality client libraries in seven popular programming languages. This is API publishing the Google way, but large teams aren't required. With shared open-source tooling, even the smallest developer can build scalable, usable APIs that delight.
