Building web and mobile applications is easier now than ever before. Adopt the architecture of building on APIs and cloud services and 80% of your project will be completed before you start. This talk tracks the history of APIs through mashup mayhem, an openness backlash and to a future where regular people will ask for APIs. Immersed in APIs since 2009, Adam DuVander will share stories of API success and failure. As he looks to the future, Adam will share how the hundred year-old principles of an Italian economist are about to make the lives of today’s creative technologists really interesting.
