API Security and REST API Metadata Usage Presented by SmartBear at API Strategy & Practice

Lorinda Brandon, Product Marketing Manager, Testing and Performance Products at SmartBear Software, the leading provider of quality and performance management tools, and Ole Lensmar, SmartBear’s Chief Technology Officer, are presenting at the API Strategy & Practice Conference, Wednesday, March 26 – Friday, March 28, 2014 in Amsterdam. Testing APIs has been an obscure, undervalued and often misunderstood practice, but very important in achieving overall software quality. In order to promote API best practices, in addition to speaking at API conferences, SmartBear recently launched the API Testing Dojo, a useful resource to anyone working with APIs regardless of the tools they use.

During the Security & Testing Session, Lorinda is presenting, “Putting the Hack Back into Hackathon.” As we get better at building connected apps and expanding the Internet of Things (IoT), there are various considerations in testing this new technology. Testing and security reviews become more important and complex in this new world. Lorinda reviews some recent breaches and offers ideas on how to get ahead of these abuses in the future.

During the Service Descriptions Session, Ole is presenting, “A Splash in the Pool with REST Metadata.” Whether one likes it or not, the usage of REST API metadata is being more widely adopted in the REST community. Ole provides guidance in these murky waters, giving equal attention and voice to the agonists and antagonists in this heated debate. He looks at three of the more popular metadata initiatives, comparing how they attempt to describe REST APIs and what they offer in the area of tooling and community.

For more than 30 years, Lorinda has worked in the high tech industry for various companies, including Mashery, RR Donnelley, EMC, Kayak Software, Exit41 and Intuit, among others. She is a strong advocate for women in IT, promoting the importance of closing the gender gap for upcoming generations. Follow her on Twitter @lindybrandon. Ole is the co-founder of eviware software, which joined forces with SmartBear in 2011, and the creator of SoapUI, the most used API testing tool in the world. He speaks frequently on the importance of API testing and other related topics. Follow Ole on Twitter @olensmar.
