During the APIStrat Tech Un-Workshop, the Track 1 panel explores the differences between emerging API metadata formats including API Blueprint, Swagger, RAML and Hypermedia Profiles, all providing different ways of modeling and defining an API, their commonalities and differences as well projecting what might be needed in the future. The panel explores how to promote machine readable format adoption and discovery of published formats and instances of APIs. Lorinda and Michael are joined by expert panelists Jakub Nestril of Apiary; Tony Tam of Reverb; Jerome Louvel of Restlet; Kin Lane, API Evangelist; Steven Willmott of 3scale; and Mike Amundsen of API Academy.

In his presentation, “Exploring Approaches for Maliciously Hacking APIs and How to Prevent Them,” Michael Giller puts on his hacker-cloak to demonstrate how one can attempt to break into an API using common malicious approaches – injection attacks, fuzzing, session spoofing, cross-site scripting and the like are all useful and extremely powerful weapons if the target isn't prepared. Michael is Sales Engineer for SoapUI, the most used API testing tool in the world. Follow him on Twitter @GillerMichael.

In her presentation, “After the Breathlessness: What We Need to Figure Out About IoT,” Lorinda explores the reality check needed with the Internet of Things (IoT). We can build solutions faster than we can devise safe and thorough ways to test them, we can figure out how to pass data between our devices faster than we can figure out the security and legal implications, and we can put new IoT apps on the market sooner than we can figure out how to make them easy to buy and install. While the possibilities with IoT are exciting, we need to examine next steps.

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.
