Author: Ikenna Nwaiwu<br><i>Foreword by Melissa van der Hecht</i>

Improve speed, quality, AND cost by automating your API delivery process!

Automating API Delivery shows you how to strike the perfect balance between speed and usability by applying DevOps automation principles to your API design and delivery process. It lays out a clear path to making both the organizational and technical changes you need to deliver high-quality APIs both rapidly and reliably.

In Automating API Delivery you’ll learn how to:

  • Enforce API design standards with linting
  • Automate breaking-change checks to control design creep
  • Ensure accuracy of API reference documents
  • Centralize API definition consistency checks
  • Automate API configuration deployment
  • Conduct effective API design reviews

Author Ikenna Nwaiwu provides comprehensive guidance on implementing APIOps in your organization. He carefully walks through the technical steps and introduces the essential open-source tools, with practical advice and insights from his years of experience. You’ll benefit from his personal tips for avoiding common pitfalls and challenges of moving to automated API delivery.
