Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are seemingly everywhere. Thanks to the popularity of web-based products, cloud-based X-as-a-service offerings, and IoT, it is becoming increasingly important for engineers to understand all aspects of APIs, from design, to building, to operation.
Research shows that there is increasing demand for near real-time APIs, in which speed and flexibility of response is vitally important. This emag explores this emerging trend in more detail.
We hope you enjoy this collection of articles focused on real-time APIs.
