OpenAPI is the standard way to describe your HTTP API, adopted by most modern APIs. With the spec at the centre of your workflow, you can improve the quality of your API and development practices, and make integrations painless. With standardisation comes tooling and in this session, I will show you to leverage this to your advantage. We'll cover what OpenAPI is, why it's interesting and then how to use it. We will also look at how the OpenAPI specification enables you to create documentation, use mock servers and improve the robustness of our API with validation. This session is ideal for anyone who wants to write an API specification once and use it everywhere.

A really good overview for how to use OpenAPI.

I really enjoyed this talk, with a great rundown of the spec and its purpose with the explanation of a number of great tools we can use.

Rob did great going over the nitty gritty of OpenAPI. He introduced supporting tooling that I'm planning to implement with my projects. I left with a better understanding of OpenAPI, and with objectives. Great talk!
