Workshop

API Management within a Microservices Architecture

Microservice architecture is often misunderstood and misread. The architecture promotes lightweight edge gateways and proxy processors. This very fact is misunderstood as a replacement for an API Management layer, which focuses a lot more on quality of services such as life-cycle management, fine-grained security, throttling, and a developer enablement portal.

During this workshop, we will discuss, the place of API Management in a microservices ecosystem. We will discuss the purpose of edge gateways and proxies and how that complements a well defined API Management layer.
