The History Of The Future Of APIs - Kin Lane, API Evangelist & Audrey Watters, Hack Education
In 2003 Gartner predicted that 40% of financial transactions, and 35% of government functions would be web services. The history of technology is full of these sorts of predictions as futurists and business people insist that in 5,10,20 years time "their product" will be ubiquitous. Audrey Watters and Kin Lane will explore the history of predicting the future of techology and discuss how to cut through the marketing hype and reveal predictions for what they are, helping us all see through smoke and mirrors used regularly to control and shape how we see the world.

Describing Your API with OpenAPI 3 - Anthony Eden, DNSimple
For the last 10 years, DNSimple has operated a comprehensive web API for buying, connecting, and operating domain names. After hearing about OpenAPI at APIStrat 2017, we decided to describe the DNSimple API using the OpenAPI v3 specification - this is the story of why we did it, how we did it, and where we are today.

By the end of this presentation you will have the tools you’ll need to evaluate your own API and decide if implementing OpenAPI makes sense for you, and if so, how you can get started. You’ll have a better understanding of the tools available to you to help write your OpenAPI 3 definition, as well the basics on how to write your own definition for your APIs.

Any Way You Want It: Extending Swagger UI for Fun and Profit - Kyle Shockey, SmartBear Software
Your APIs are tailored to your needs - shouldn't your tools be as well? In this talk, we'll explore how Swagger UI 3 makes it easier than ever to create custom functionality, and common use cases for the power that the UI's plugin system provides.

Learn how to:
- Create plugins that extend existing features and define new functionality
- Integrate Swagger UI seamlessly by defining a custom layout
- Package and share plugins that can be reused by the community (or your organization)

Sway: Advancing OpenAPI with Tooling - Jeremy Whitlock, Google
OpenAPI has become one of the most popular formats for describing APIs. But OpenAPI is just a description format. What really makes OpenAPI the leader it has become is the tooling built around it. I would like to discuss Sway, an open source library for building tooling for OpenAPI written in JavaScript/Node.js. Sway is an OpenAPI document loader/resolver, validator and a large set of APIs that can be utilized by OpenAPI tooling authors to create the best of breed tooling that has helped make OpenAPI what it is today.
