Presentation: Getting Started with OpenAPI

It’s been over 5 years since Swagger was handed over and turned into the OpenAPI Specification. However, people still get stuck on how to get started with building an API using the specification. This talk covers what OpenAPI does, how to get your team leads, managers, and above to buy into using the specification, how to start with it, and breaks down the core concepts of the specification. If time permits, we will look at some deeper topics like the $ref key and how you can maintain large spec files with ease.

About Matt: Matt is an open source developer, senior architect, and cyclist. You can find him online hosting the “PHP Town Hall” and “APIs You Won’t Hate” podcasts.

New Meeting Feature: Open Spaces! We’re going to continue with a new discussion format among attendees. Please come with some questions or discussion topics in mind. The group will vote on suggestions and we’ll cover things, based on interest, in a rotating panel style. Come share your expertise!
