When 3Scale and API Evangelist first planned API Strategy & Practice, we envisioned an event where everyone is welcome to come and talk about their company’s API strategy and tell stories from the trenches about how they are putting APIs to use. We want to create a forum where anyone of any skill level can come and listen to these stories, in an inclusive environment where they won’t be listening to sales pitches, or made to feel stupid for what they don’t know, in an environment where they are free from harassment.
All the past API Strategy & Practice events have been very open, inclusive conversations and we want to make sure it stays this way. Today we are publishing a code of code to make sure we set a healthy bar for what is expected from everyone participating in the conversation, which includes:
We are making sure that all of our staff is aware of what is acceptable behavior, and available to address any incidents. Our goal is to make sure you have a safe, worry-free event, where you can learn about APIs and leave #APIStrat feeling empowered.
Thank you for supporting API Strategy & Practice, and for making it the open, inclusive conversation about the API space that it is.
if you have feedback on the code please send it to us - we’d love to make it as good a fit for the community as possible!
We look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam!
