Modeling APIs for Legacy Apps - Lone Star PHP

Modeling APIs for Legacy Apps - Lone Star PHP

"API first" is a great strategy for new applications. We can benefit from having a single interface for both our web and mobile presences and free up the developers to use the proper technologies where appropriate. Unfortunately, in the real world, most of us live and breathe legacy applications. The system was conceived long before APIs and we don't have the ability to just restart from the ground up. In this session we'll lay out a strategy on how to successfully model how to build APIs for legacy applications. More importantly, we'll work through the modeling process using a real world production application and index cards to describe each component and how they fit together.
