API and Microservices Best Practices

Keith Casey, API Problem Solver, Okta
Matt Raible, Developer Advocate, Okta

You’ve probably heard the rumors about microservices — that they’re faster to build and easier to manage than any other solution out there. They also solve all the problems you didn’t realize you had, and make a fantastic cup of coffee while they’re at it. It doesn’t matter what the question is, the answer is microservices. Unfortunately, in reality microservices are a little more complex. In this session, we’ll walk through the principles and demonstrate the practices for building secure microservices using OAuth, fine-grained scope management, and repeatable, scalable processes.
