API Workshop in the Netherlands, April 3 - with Essent, Open Bank, and Axway - Covering Mobile, OAuth, Cloud

Following our recent API Workshops in Australia and New Zealand, the next port of call is The Netherlands, where we are running an API Workshop on April 3 in Utrecht.

For people who haven't been to an API Workshop, here's a quick description of the format: It's a half-day event, beginning with presentations by real live API practitioners speaking about the experiences. Following these presentations and Q&A, we then look at the technology behind APIs. At the Netherlands event, I'm very pleased to say that we have two great speakers lined up:

Firstly there is Simon Redfern from the Open Bank Project. I've followed the innovative work of the Open Bank Project for a while now. Here's a great introduction to their work by Tom Groenfeldt at Forbes. Simon will be speaking about how APIs enable a bank to operate as a platform.

The second speaker is Menno Abbink from Essent (largest electricity utility in the Netherlands). Menno has deployed APIs in the Cloud, on Amazon Web Services, and in fact shared the stage with Werner Vogels (CTO at Amazon) to speak about them at last year's AWS Summit in Amsterdam. Menno gave a fantastic talk at our last API Workshop in Brussels , covering APIs for household electricity usage and electrical vehicles. At the API Workshop on April 3, Menno is speaking about "Cloud to Ground integration", linking from APIs in the Cloud to an on-premises ESB. Here is a great introduction to Menno's work in this profile by Jan Stafford at TechTarget.

So it really is a privilege to have such great speakers lined up for the API Workshop. Following their talks, we'll then enter the "workshop" part of the API Workshop. We will be looking at how to deliver some of the technologies which they cover - including Cloud-to-Ground integration (bridging using the SalesForce API), security for APIs (technologies such as OAuth 2.0 in action) and mobile (walking through how to build a mobile app accessing APIs which are exposed through an API Developer Portal). We'll also see HTML 5 WebSockets in action. Register for the API Workshop for free here, or click on the "Register Now" button below.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
