The API Surgery: Set up your API shopfront in 90 minutes

Thursday, August 17th

6:30 pm - The API Surgery: Set up your API shopfront in 90 minutes

Got an API? Want to manage it better but don’t know where to start? Maybe you’re looking to release it to the world, but find the technical steps to get there a pain in the neck?

Tyk’s here to help. Join us for a 90-minute API surgery led by Tyk’s lead Solution Architect, David Garvey, (or, as we like to call him, our ‘API Doctor’). It’ll be a hands-on, technical session, with lots of opportunities to Q&A, all powered by open-source, pizza and drinks.

All you’ll need to bring is your laptop and the URL to your API* – we’ll provide the rest (including our totally free open-source API gateway, either on-premises, or in the Tyk Cloud).

By the end of the 90 minutes you will have:

  • Set up your API using the free, open-source Tyk Gateway
  • Published a Developer Portal so that your API can be viewed by the world
  • Created API keys so that others can access it
  • Used policies to easily control API keys
  • Configured your API access settings, so that access to your API is always safe and secure
  • Understood how to read your API analytics
  • Benefitted from a hands-on approach so that you can continue to go forth and improve your API
  • Stuffed yourself with pizza (just us?)

Doors open at 1830 to allow laptop set-up and introductions for a 1900 start.

The API surgery will close at 2030 but there’ll be time to ask final questions and mingle with your fellow API lovers until 2100.

NB: This is a hands-on workshop with limited spaces to ensure you get the most out of the session with our API Doc. Grab a ticket to reserve your spot.

*Not quite at the point where you have your API URL set-up? That’s OK too, we’ll provide a test URL that you can use, so you can start planning your own API operations.
