There are major advantages to today’s applications being built atop APIs. If you’re reading ProgrammableWeb, there’s a good chance you know all about integrating with other services. The major disadvantage of modern distributed architecture is pretty obvious—someone else’s service could go down and it’s outside of your control. You might not even know a service is down, which is why many top API providers are now making status pages available. These sites help communicate to developers when anything is amiss with the API.

A series of conferences known as the Nordic APIs have started a four-day tour of four countries in Northern Europe. The mission: Bringing API discussions to the capitals of Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway. Presentations by sponsors MuleSoft (parent company of ProgrammableWeb), Ping Identity, Twilio, Axway and Layer 7 are joined by local speakers in each country under the overarching theme of “Private, Partner and Public APIs.” The first event, held in Stockholm today, was fully booked, with events in Copenhagen and Helsinki also expected to reach audience capacity. ProgrammableWeb spoke with presenters and participants at the opening event.
By providing a platform that allows scalability, flexibility and fluidity, APIs are encouraging businesses to grow in new ways that remove the need for traditional partnerships.
