Stoplight Software Architect to Host Workshop at API Specifications Conference in Vancouver

Phil Sturgeon to showcase how OSS tool Spectral transforms API management

VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–, the enterprise API design management company, today announced that its Software Architect Phil Sturgeon will lead a workshop on the OSS API design governance and API style guide solution, Spectral, at the upcoming API Specifications Conference in Vancouver, Canada on Tuesday, October 15, 2019. The API Specifications Conference, organized by The Linux Foundation’s OpenAPI Initiative, draws API practitioners from around the world to discuss the evolution of API technology.

“API design used to be handled by one or two people at the company. As more and more developers and technical writers get involved, review and approval has become an enormous time and money suck. Enterprises often have “OpenAPI Gatekeepers” responsible for checking things conform to style guides, making API design really hard to scale,” said Phil Sturgeon, Software Architect at Stoplight. “The free OSS tool Spectral lets those OpenAPI Gatekeepers automate themselves and get on with something more useful, leading to greater consistency across their APIs, and drastically speeding up the review process via Continuous Integration.”

Attendees can expect to leave the workshop with a firm grasp on how to implement Spectral to improve their organizations’ approach to API development.
