First-Class Collaboration and APIs, Delivered by Postman



    Be a part of Kevin Swiber, API Lifecycle and Platform Strategist at Postman, on September eighth, 2022 at 10:00am Pacific Time for Learn how to Handle Complexity Throughout the API Lifecycle,  a reside on-line occasion hosted by the Cisco Developer Relations workforce!

    In the event you’re creating with APIs – and who isn’t? – then you definitely want a device to check how the APIs (Utility Programming Interfaces) you need to use really work. Postman is a incredible device for that. It’s a browser-based consumer that checks HTTP requests in a graphical consumer interface, and offers responses from APIs underneath take a look at that you should utilize to assist construct functions.

    Right here at Cisco, our Developer Expertise workforce has been collaborating with Postman for the reason that early days of DevNet in 2017. We recognize what Postman presents and the way it has performed a major function in serving to educate and encourage our developer group and our enterprise companions. The device has enabled our workforce to construct interactive academic supplies, like our Coding & API Studying Labs, to assist individuals rapidly get hands-on with our personal APIs. Due to Postman, builders and prospects can get extra worth from Cisco APIs rapidly, and might resolve enterprise issues effectively.

    We need to enable you study Postman, and never simply because it helps you utilize our personal Cisco APIs. It actually is a vital device for all builders.

    Who Makes use of This Common API Instrument

    Postman is an API consumer that makes it straightforward for builders to create, share, take a look at, and doc APIs.  Within the Cisco Developer Expertise workforce, builders use Cisco APIs to construct complicated IoT (Web of Issues), enterprise, and cellular options. DevOps engineers examine methods to make use of Cisco APIs in automating workflows, and in coupling microservices and methods collectively. All of those groups use Postman.

    With the rise in API adoption in networks, many community engineers have adopted NetDevOps instruments. It’s nice to see groups taking a look at creating a method of API-first growth, or planning the API roadmap to handle reliability obstacles earlier than they happen.

    Getting Began

    Attending to “Hey World” is a good first step that reveals how our APIs work, and Postman makes it straightforward: See our Cisco SD-WAN Studying Lab to get there your self. DevNet’s developer expertise workforce works exhausting to stipulate potential use instances after which assist builders rapidly make progress on their options. Whereas we will all be taught by learning API documentation in instruction format, builders like me usually need to be taught by implementing. So we offer a set of API calls accessible through Postman that may get devs began quick  We be sure that our Postman collections are stored present and related, to make them helpful in manufacturing in addition to training. For instance, after we launched the newest SD-WAN Sandbox and API documentation, we up to date and created a brand new Postman assortment only for it.

    Meet an API Wizard


    I encourage you to affix us on September 8, 2022, at 10am Pacific Time for a reside webinar: “Learn how to Handle Complexity Throughout the API Lifecycle,” with Kevin Swiber from Postman. This session will handle the problem of managing the rising complexity of APIs. It can current an answer to implement aware practices by means of every stage of the API Lifecycle.

    We’ll cowl core matters like:

    • Manufacturing API design methods
    • What to do about versioning
    • Learn how to implement governance, and
    • The must-haves of observability.

    Kevin is Postman’s API Lifecycle and Platform Strategist. He’s a software program engineering, structure, and developer instruments advocate, and had been centered on distributed methods and APIs for greater than a decade. Kevin has profession has spanned enterprise developer and the API Administration area. He’s labored at quite a lot of API product firms, together with Apigee (acquired by Google Cloud Platform) and now Postman, the place he collaborates with each trade and enterprise firms on constructing a platform technique throughout the complete API Lifecycle. He’s additionally the Advertising and marketing Chair for the OpenAPI Initiative.

    Don’t miss what’s going to be an extremely informative and training session with an actual professional within the subject! Be a part of me by signing up for this occasion now!

    Your Homework

    As I mentioned, Cisco’s Developer Expertise workforce has constructed  one of many largest Postman collections, which might help customers get to their first significant interactions with a Cisco API.

    Cisco’s Postman collections.

    The  Postman Collections are Executable API Descriptions. Postman’s assortment folders make it straightforward to maintain the API requests and parts organized per platform, primarily based on Cisco’s APIs and capabilities.

    For much more background, take a look at the net seminar I gave just lately on how Cisco Developer Expertise builds our API content material with Postman, on the Postman Galaxy convention. Test it out!
