API-First Development with RAML and SoapUI

Room 1: 01:30 PM - 03:30 PM

Daniel Feist, Architect @ Mulesoft
Matti Hjelm, SoapUI Product Manager @ SmartBear
In this workshop we'll develop a real-world API together using RAML to define the interface and SoapUI to simulate and test the interface and API consumer experience before even thinking about the implementation. In doing this we'll cover the powerful design-first features of RAML as well as the tooling available to facilite this approach. We’ll also cover the mocking and prototyping features of SoapUI. Finally we'll implement, deploy and test our new API in a production environment.
