Back and Better than Ever: APIs You Won't Hate (the newsletter)
📮 We're thinking about calling this the APIs POST... is that too obvious?
APIs You Won't Hate is back with a new monthly newsletter. We'll share news, updates, and more on all things APIs. Along with some of our favorite articles and resources from the past month.
If you're wondering why you're getting this email, you signed up for our newsletters at some point. It's been a while, so if you want to unsubscribe -- No problem, we still love you! You can always find the resources we make at apisyouwonthate.com.
I hope you enjoy this week's issue.
All the best,
Thanks so much to our sponsor, Zuplo:
News from the API dev world
JSON Schema: Another Breaking Change
The well-loved JSON Schema has introduced a breaking change to their next release as they move towards a stable specification. Sometimes you have to break things to improve them, and that's ok.
Build as a monolith and deploy as microservices
Google released a new open-source framework for building distributed applications called Service Weaver. The cool part is you can make it as a monolith and then deploy it as microservices. Service Weaver also helps with service-to-service communication complexities so you can focus on creating business logic, not networking. We can save the conversation about whether microservices are good for another time 😉.
Design and Build Great Web APIs
I would be amiss if I didn't include this book in this week's newsletter. I have been reading this book, and it is fantastic. It is an excellent resource for anyone looking to design and build APIs. Mike Amundsen's books are pure gold; he knows his stuff.
OpenAPI Tooling Registry
The OpenAPI initiative has put together a registry of tools that support OpenAPI. This registry covers everything from parsers to SDKs, gateways and more.
