How Microsoft Uses OpenAPI to Connect to Everything - Jeff Hollan, Microsoft
Learn how Microsoft is using OpenAPI to accelerate the development and extensibility of some of it's powerful tools within Azure. Azure Logic Apps and Microsoft Flow were built to allow seamless integration across over a hundred services and APIs. Early on Microsoft made the decision to use the OpenAPI standard to describe these APIs. This fun presentation will go over the difference that has made (both for our developers and our users), the challenges we've faced, and the opportunities that have come.

Standards and Definitions of Your APIs and Why Words Matter - Ash Hathaway, Independent
In this session, we’ll examine why the words we use matter- and especially in API documentation and around your product. Semantics don’t have to be boring, either. We’ll look at how words change over time and to different users. There will also be strategies for consistency as well as tools to guide teams to consensus.

Embracing JSON Schema - Jeremy Whitlock, Google
JSON Schema is an extremely powerful, yet easily approachable, tool for describing data structures. In fact, the OpenAPI has embraced JSON Schema and currently uses it for describing the inputs/outputs of your APIs. JSON Schema is a technology that is often misunderstood and often used in ways that leave people scratching their heads when it does not work the way they expected. This talk will introduce JSON Schema from the ground up, complete with gotchas and best practices. In the end, the hope is that the attendee will see the value of JSON Schema and understand it well enough to use in their OpenAPI documents and even their own applications.
