An Introduction to Event APIs

Learn how asynchronous communication can revolutionize business, positively impact scalability and real-time decision-making, and grasp synchronous-asynchronous federation technologies for seamless integration. Gain practical insights into how API lifecycle management is evolving to cater for Event APIs with technologies beyond REST, such as Webhooks, Websockets, Server-sent Events, event brokers (e.g Kafka), and relevant specifications (e.g AsyncAPI and CloudEvents).
