How to Scale Event-based Architectures and API Transformations


Last Revised: November 17, 2021

 

 

Kong’s gateway has a multitude of features to help you secure, govern and decentralize your APIs and help create a great developer platform for publishing and consuming those APIs. One aspect of this that sometimes goes unspoken is how even a single API can have a variety of uses, each with its own special needs.  

Consider an API that is used by both a thick desktop client and a mobile application: in the latter, you may need to have a much lower bandwidth experience by only displaying some necessary information.

In this webinar, you will learn how you can transform both requests and responses, providing unique experiences to various downstream consumers and upstream producers of APIs.

Key takeaways:

  • Understanding how to do advanced data transformations in the Kong Gateway for legacy applications and consumers as well as to build different experiences for your consumers depending on their use cases.
  • How to use the Kong Gateway with Kafka for event-focused APIs and integrations.
  • Live demos of Kong Gateway 2.6 and details on how to get started with Kong Gateway 2.6.
