API Specifications Conference

This event has passed. View the upcoming Applications Events.


OpenAPI Initiative’s API Specifications Conference (ASC) is a place for API practitioners and enthusiasts to come together and discuss the evolution of API technologies.  ASC includes cutting-edge technology keynotes and sessions that chart the future of APIs with in-depth specification and standards discussions.  The event is designed to be highly interactive with plenty of discussion time throughout the workshops and sessions.

The OpenAPI Specification, RAML, Blueprint, gRPC, OData, JSON Schema, GraphQL, AsyncAPI, and other formats will all be topics at the event, enabling attendees to get familiar with these formats and discuss how to use them in practice.

The event has its origins in the API Strategy and Practice Conference (APIStrat) which ran for many years and became part of the OpenAPI Initiative in 2016. The collaborative spirit and community from APIStrat continue through the ASC event and we look forward to many of the same lively conversations and debates!

API practitioners and enthusiasts involved across the full spectrum of API lifecycle activities will attend ASC 2022. Expect API designers, API developers, API testers, API technical writers, API product managers, API security, API Operations, enterprise architects, and many more personas to actively participate.

Content at the event will range from beginner introductions to API specifications all the way through best practice and cutting-edge specialist topics. OpenAPI is also supporting industry specific special interest groups, such as finance and travel. Come to see how the spec is helping these industries or to start a SIG for your industry.
