Swagger presentation recording -- Harnessing the Chi of Swagger in your REST API documentation
Here’s a description of my Swagger presentation, which was titled “Harnessing the Chi of Swagger in your REST API documentation”:
Frequently when tech writers start creating API documentation, a developer will ask, Why don’t we use Swagger? Swagger, or the OpenAPI specification, is an open standard for describing your REST API. The Swagger/OpenAPI spec, which is created in YAML or JSON, can be parsed by different tools, such as the Swagger UI framework. Swagger UI can create an interactive experience for users to try out your API calls using their own API keys. This can be a powerful addition to your API documentation, since it gives users a sandbox to experiment with your API in an immediate way.
Here are the slides and the recording:
