API tools, services, and techniques abound, but in this 99% Yak-Shaving™ Free session, we’ll focus on the ones that require little (or no) setup, and that you can be using before I stop talking.

Whether you’re building or consuming APIs, there will be something for you. If you’re new to APIs, you’ll leave with a bunch of things you can use right now. If you’ve been doing this for a while, you’ll probably see a new way to simplify something that’s bugged you in the past.

Great tips for dealing with API's. Learned lots of things that I can use to help me while maintaining my API.

Great info. Stoplight's Discovery and the PHPStorm HTTP requests from a scratch file are things I'll definitely be using.

Seeing tools in use was exactly what I needed. There are a number of things I've been doing the hard way that I can now simplify and streamline. In particular, the recently-upgraded PhpStorm client, and capturing responses to create Swagger definitions. I sure wish I'd come to Tim's Thursday tutorial.
