APIIDA joins the OpenAPI Initiative

Armin Stephan
Chief Operating Officer (COO)
APIIDA joins the OpenAPI Initiative, the consortium of forward-looking industry experts focused on evolving and implementing the OpenAPI Specification (OAS).

“We are excited to be a part of the OpenAPI Initiative” says Markus Müller, CTO, and co-founder of APIIDA. Having widely adopted standards like OpenAPI provides us with a stable base we can build upon. Together with the other members of the OpenAPI Initiative, we want to expand the reach and the adoption of the OpenAPI Specification. This will benefit APIIDA customers, and it’s the right thing to do for the broader API community,” “By actively contributing to the special interest groups and the steering committees we want to give back to the community.”

The OpenAPI Initiative (OAI) was created by industry experts who recognize the immense value of standardizing on how APIs are described. As an open governance structure under the Linux Foundation, the OAI is focused on creating, evolving and promoting a vendor neutral description format. The OpenAPI Specification was originally based on the Swagger Specification, donated by SmartBear Software.
