Book Description

The aim of this short book is to introduce the general themes, challenges, and opportunities in the world of managing API traffic. Most of the examples and recommendations come from my own experience (or that of colleagues) while working with customers, ranging from small local startups to global enterprises.

This book is for those just getting started in API traffic management as well as those who have experience and want to review the basics and take your work to the next level. Developers who are responsible for creating and maintaining APIs will learn how network admins and those charged with enabling API traffic collection identify and track key API activity. And admins who design and maintain API traffic metrics can learn how to align and enrich traffic collection to support and inform API developers.

And you don't need to be a traffic management practitioner to extract value from this book. I also spend time focusing on the business value of good API traffic practice, including the ability to connect your organization's business goals and internal progress measurements with the useful traffic monitoring, reporting, and analysis.
