How many thousands of times has this workflow been codified? What if it never needs to be written again?

AWE is a method that enables developers to retrieve data via APIs without the need to write API aware code. This method has been shown to reduce development time by at least two orders of magnitude.

This presentation describes a method that enables developers to focus on WHAT they want to retrieve from an API, not HOW to retrieve it. Specifically, we have abstracted out the standard workflow for interacting with an API.

We utilize the API documentation and a document that describes what data items are required by the application. We further analyze the API documentation to “string together” the calls required to retrieve the data items.

Stop the insanity of pedantic codification!!
