IBM is a Platinum Sponsor at API Strategy & Practice Conference

By October 26, 2017Blog

The API Strategy & Practice Conference is approaching – it’s taking place in Portland on Oct 31- Nov 2. I’m thrilled to get to go to another API Strategy conference, my last one being in Austin 2015. This time around, I’ll be speaking!

Brief introduction from me – my name is Sai Vennam and I’m a Developer Advocate at IBM. I’m a big fan of Node.js but also play with Java and Go quite a bit. I love speaking about technology that I’m passionate about; that especially includes APIs.

If you’re attending, be sure to check out my talk on Wednesday on “Building Serverless APIs for Modern Application Architectures”. In the modern era of software development, businesses are using the latest and greatest technologies like serverless functions. However, they still have to support legacy systems and software. I’ll be talking about hybrid application architectures that have spawned from these requirements and specifically how serverless APIs fit in.

Serverless is rapidly picking up traction and IBM is at the forefront of this adoption. We’ve been developing our serverless capabilities completely in the open-source as an Apache project – OpenWhisk. You can also take advantage of the capabilities on IBM Cloud Functions.

In addition to the session, I’ll also be at the booth with the talented Erin McKean and other fellow IBMers to talk to you about your newest API projects!

We hope to see you in Portland! Be sure to come by the IBM booth.
