Analyst Steve Craggs and the GSMA's Tim Haysom confirmed for API Workshop in London, May 21

I'm excited to say that we have some great speakers lined up for our API Workshop event in London on 21 May. For those of you who have not been to one of these events before, it's a simple format. It mixes analyst speakers and practitioners, and provides technical examples covering APIs, SOA, Cloud and Mobile. So, a good mix of practice and theory.

Recently we ran API Workshops all across Australia and New Zealand (speakers included Ben Kepes of Forbes, plus ANZ Bank and the New Zealand Government), in the Netherlands (speakers included the OpenBank Project and Essent), and worldwide.

Registration is free, and all are welcome: security people, mobile developers, architects, and anyone interested in APIs in general.

Here's the agenda for the API Workshop in London on May 21:

Firstly, there is Steve Craggs (@stevecraggs), an analyst from Lustratus Research who covers SOA Governance and API Management. Steve was at our API Workshop last year as an attendee, and provided much insightful input from the floor. So now we have him on the stage! Looking forward to what Steve has to say, from his analyst standpoint, about SOA and APIs.
Next is Tim Haysom (@haysom_runner) from the GSM Association (GSMA). One of the things which Tim will be covering at our API Workshop is identity, including identity info from mobile devices. Combined with the Cloud identity APIs examples in the hands-on workshop ("Login with Google" etc), this should make for an interesting discussion. Tim is an excellent speaker who I recently saw present at API Strategy in Amsterdam.
Fresh from his Scandinavian swing on the Nordic APIs tour, where he delivered API security insights, Axway's own Tom Burnell will be covering case studies of API Management and SOA in action. Tom brings a practitioners viewpoint, having worked with some of the largest companies in the UK and beyond, architecting API Management and SOA Governance infrastructure.

I'll also be speaking about the importance of an API Portal for engaging developers to the API Economy. And, one of the key features of our API Workshops is the hands-on part. We will see exactly how to leverage an API Portal in order to publish APIs. We'll see how a mobile app is developed to consume APIs. And, we'll see brokering to Cloud services, such as SalesForce, in action. We'll also see HTML5 WebSockets in action. This is all covered, in detail, in the tech lab part of the event. So it's more than just presentations - you also leave with info on how API management is deployed in practical terms.

And we have a fantastic location for the API Workshop. It's taking place at the St Paul's Roof Pavilion of the Royal Festival Hall on London's South Bank. Last June we ran an API Workshop event at the same venue: here a photo I took from the balcony then, on a beautiful sunny day in London.



Here is the form to register. The event starts at 8.30am and runs all day. I look forward to seeing you there!

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
