Do you want to drive awareness and understanding of how APIs work among your peers and colleagues? As a scalable alternative to full-blown hackathons, an API Scavenger hunt could be the solution to break down the intimidation factor for API newbies! Learn how Cisco DevNet piloted this technique and how we built a Swagger-based answer-submission API in two weeks. Finally, we will also discuss how we deployed using Cloud Native and 12 Factor principles.

Advisory Platform Architect @Pivotal

Many of us are using microservice architecture for applications we know will go to production. Let's tackle the topic of how to secure microservices! We will focus on the patterns and protocols used to secure microservice based architectures. The goal is to present how standards such as JWT, JWA, JWS, JWE, JWK, OAuth2, OpenId Connect, SCIM and others can be combined to make writing secure microservices easy. There will be demos to illustrate these ideas.
