The API Specifications Conference (ASC) is a place for API practitioners to come together and discuss the evolution of API technology. ASC includes cutting edge technology keynotes and sessions that chart the future of APIs, in-depth specification and standards discussions and an extensive tutorial track. The event is designed to be highly interactive with plenty of discussion time through workshop and un-conference style sessions in order to facilitate interaction.
OpenAPI Specification, gRPC, AsyncAPI, GraphQL, RAML, Blueprint, oDATA, JSON Schema, and other formats will all be topics, enabling attendees to get familiar with these formats and discuss how to use them in practice.
The event has its origins in the API Strategy and Practice Conference (APIStrat) which ran for many years and became part of the OpenAPI Initiative in 2016. The collaborative spirit and community from APIStrat will be continued through the ASC event and we look forward to many of the same lively conversations and debates!
API practitioners including API developers, API Operations teams, API Designers and Enterprise Architects will attend ASC 2020. Content at the event will range from beginner introductions to API specifications all the way through best practice and cutting edge specialist topics.
Please submit your proposals for either a talk, open discussion, or tutorial:
The most important part of the submission is information about yourself and the topics you’d like to present on.
Be concise, but also be specific. It is hard for us to accept talks that are vague. Remember to ask: What exactly will someone get out of this talk?
In the Session description section, include an abstract (1-2 paragraphs) for your talk.
In the Notes to organizer section, consider adding a brief outline to help us get a better idea of what the talk will be about.
You will have the option of pre-recording your talk and participating throughout or giving your talk live.
Timezones will be optimized for the Americas, but speakers can pre-record if the timezones are not favorable.
If you need help or advice for your submissions, please contact email@example.com. We are especially encouraged to help first time and underrepresented speakers.
