Yes, it’s that time of year when people think about RFC7523, which describes how to exchange JWT for opaque OAuth tokens. Right? If you’re like me, the waves of acronyms, jargon, and IETF RFCs (see what I did there?) seem to never end. OAuth, JWT, RFC 7523, JTI, … Continue reading
Bryan Kirschner of Apigee on what it takes for a CEO to pass the laugh test when it comes to digital strategy. He proposes a handful of metrics that CEOs should be managing; and says that observers should judge CEOs on their progress on these metrics. Makes a … Continue reading
Here’s the replay of the Webinar, on OpenID Connect and JWT that I did with Vinit Mehta a week ago or so. It’s about 45 minutes long. If you have questions, you can post them to The Apigee Community
Swagger has been renamed! Three weeks ago. I didn’t realize this, and (forgive me) I’ve been continuing to use the term “swagger” when I really should have been using “OpenAPI”, in the time since. Helpfully, Marsh, an esteemed colleague of mine, has produced a slackbot to remind me … Continue reading

David Linthicum, in his InfoWorld article, observes that SOA is a “bad word”, noting that SOA Companies are now rebranding themselves as API Management companies. Some editor at InfoWorld apparently chose the article title to be “Service governance morphs into cloud API management”. But I don’t think that’s … Continue reading
Having access to a quick way to get dictionary lookups of English words while using the computer has always been useful to me. I don’t like to pay the “garish dancing images” ad tax that comes with using commercial dictionary sites like merriam-webster.com; or worse, the page-load-takes-10-seconds tax. I … Continue reading
