    The AsyncAPI specification allows you to create machine-readable definitions of your asynchronous APIs. (by asyncapi)

    However, in order for the system to work effectively, there must be a common understanding between the components regarding events and their data structures. This is where AsyncAPI comes in; it helps define a contract that describes how the components communicate and behave effectively.

    Let’s walk through the process of implementing an event-driven API using AsyncAPI, a specification for defining asynchronous APIs. We’ll also introduce, a tool for documenting and tracking event-driven APIs lifecycle/changes, and demonstrate how you can use it in conjunction with AsyncAPI files.

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.
