A Guide to the Event-Native World of Open Standards: AsyncAPI, CloudEvents, and Shared Signals & Events

More and more, Event-Driven Architecture (EDA) is being adopted by organizations. While it unlocks new revenue streams and use cases, it also brings challenges around discovery, documentation, security, and standardization. In an Event-native API world, API products and consumers need to have the right tools, standards and specifications to address these challenges. In this session, we will dive into these standards and tools. Join this session to:

  • Learn about open standards and specifications such as CloudEvents, AsyncAPIs and Shared Signals & Events

  • Learn how these three standards and specs differentiate and work together. 

  • Explore a vendor-neutral use case that exemplifies these standards in an Event-native API Management context
