If you're subscribed to the feed, look for the audio to arrive shortly. In the mean time, here's the video from our live show last week at API Strategy and Practice in Chicago. Keeping with theme of the previous live show of "NPR knockoffs" we do an API-focused version of "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!" including Bluff the Listener, Lightning Fill in the Blanks and Limericks.
John and Steve talk about Microservices, the meaning of names and words, and discuss the value of having browsable APIs.
Steve and John release another iteration of a discussion on versioning (yes, again). Then we learn about safely invoking webhooks, including a common strategy for mitigating risk. Steve starts to see the light on SDKs after someone other than John starts to convince him. Lastly we discuss strategies for monitoring your APIs and how HTTP 2.0 isn't so scary after all.
