Gigya in an API-first company, enabling brands to connect with socially active consumers on multiple devices - web and mobile. Our API platform is handling thousands of requests per second, serving 700 enterprises and reaching 1.5 billion unique users per month.
Building a feature rich and massively used API requires one to always expect the unexpected. Things can go wrong in the weirdest ways, so you should prepare, protect and detect. In this talk we will share our experience and the lessons we learned (some of them the hard way…) about building and operating an API at scale.
