Creating an API Ecosystem that Benefits Producers and Consumers - Brayden Winterton, Brigham Young University

A few years ago, Brigham Young University set out to replace an aging API Ecosystem. The ecosystem at the time was one that was hard to navigate, contained outdated documentation, centered around non-standard authentication, and resistant to rapid iteration and a DevOps model. Noting these issues, BYU set out to create an API Ecosystem that would be a joy to use for both the API Developers, as well as their consumers. A large part of this effort has been focused around the adoption of several open standards such as OAuth2.0, JSON Web Tokens, and the OpenAPI specification. The adoptions of these standards has allowed BYU to create a system that is making API deployment and documentation easy on the developers, promises consumers up to date documentation, and allows both parties to utilize the vast number of Open Source libraries available to interact with these open standards.
