Event description
Come say "hi" to the Postman Team at our FIRST Seattle meetup and learn about Postman Visualizer, a new and easy way to work with API data.

About this Event

If you work with APIs regularly, have you ever wished your request responses were more human-readable? Have you ever had to scroll through dozens of lines of JSON or XML to find the data you needed? Come say "hi" to the Postman Team at our FIRST Seattle meetup and learn about Postman Visualizer, a new and easy way to work with API data.

We’ve lined up a compelling mix of talks for you in Seattle, beginning with Postman’s Chief Evangelist Kin Lane, then visualization platform Tableau, API gateway NGINX, then wrapping up with some more Postman goodies. Providing you with four separate talks to tune into at the meetup, as well as the usual networking and discussions with the Seattle Postman community.

  • Postman API Collections from Kin Lane (@apievangelist), Chief Evangelist @ Postman: You save your Postman requests as collections each day, but have you learned about all the ways in which collections can be applied? Let’s move beyond just reference collections for every endpoint in your API and making collections reflect the real world business use cases your APIs solve. Pushing your Postman collections to me more intuitive and useful for your developers, helping on-board them with the possibilities while also documenting what your APIs can do, providing portable, shareable, machine readable, and executable representations of what your APIs deliver.
  • How Tableau uses Postman to Enable Developers from Geraldine Zanolli a.k.a Gigi (@illonage) Developer Advocate @ Tableau: Tableau , well-known in the Business Intelligence industry for building great data visualizations, also offers a set of APIs and Developer Tools that allow developers to integrate, customize, automate, and extend Tableau to fit the specific needs of their organization. Learn how Tableau uses Postman to give developers an interface to do their first API request.
  • All about API Gateways with NGINX from Liam Crilly (@liamcrilly), Director of Product Management @ NGINX: APIs are changing the way we build applications and changing the way we expose data, both inside and outside our organizations. But what is the most efficient and effective way to deliver these APIs? That’s the job of the API gateway. In this session, we will look at different deployment patterns for API gateways, including: the edge gateway, the multi-layer gateway, microgateways, sidecars and service mesh. We will discuss how software architecture, deployment practices, and security governance all influence the selection of the most appropriate API gateway pattern.
  • Postman Visualizations from Kin Lane, Chief Evangelist @ Postman: Let’s explore Postman’s latest feature—visualizer. Don’t just view API responses in JSON or XML, and use the visualizer tool to leverage any JavaScript visualization library to render your API responses as HTML tables, lists, bar charts, heat maps, tag clouds, or any other visualization you can imagine. Spend some more time with Kin Lane for an introduction into how you can begin to visualize data returned from APIs, making your Postman collections much more visually pleasing, while also making them accessible to business users who aren’t afraid of getting downloading and putting Postman to work.

We encourage you to bring your laptop and get hands on with Postman, Tableau, and NGINX, in addition to networking before and after the talks. Of course, you are welcome to listen in, but if you are a Postman user, you know that every moment is an opportunity to actually roll up your sleeves and begin putting APIs to work in new ways.

We look forward to seeing you in Seattle!
