Internal Developer Portals: Developer Engagement Behind the Firewall - Kristof Van Tomme, Pronovix
While there are a lot of talks and blogposts about APIs and the importance of an APIs Developer eXperience, most are about public API products. And while a lot of the best practices for API products are also applicable to private APIs, there are significant differences in the circumstances and trade-offs they need to make.
The most important difference is probably in their budgets: as potential profit centers, API products can afford to invest a lot more money in documentation and UX driven developer portal improvements. Internal APIs rarely have that luxury.

In this talk I will explain the differences between public and private APIs, introduce upstream DX, and explain how it can improve downstream DX. Introduce experience design (a.k.a. gamification) and Innersourcing (open sourcing practices behind the firewall) and describe how they could be used on internal developer portals.

How to Build the Status APIs of Your Microservices Ecosystem - Mariano Vazquez, MuleSoft
There are a number of things you need to know after your service goes to Production. The most simple and important one: is it working? And if it’s not, where is the problem? When there is a problem, you might want to know what is going on with a few clicks, instead of doing a complete forensic investigation of the incident (that would probably happen later). But, more importantly, you want to design and implement the solution in a simple and secure way.

In this talk, we are going to talk about why is important to define a common language between developers and APIs. And some tools you can use to know the status of your ecosystem in real-time.
