Daniel Kocot
Head of API Consulting
Daniel has been part of the codecentric team since October 2016. Since the beginning of 2022 as Senior Solution Architect at the Dortmund location. Starting as a consultant with a focus on application lifecycle management, his focus shifted more and more towards APIs. In addition to numerous customer projects and his involvement in the open source world around APIs, he is also a frequent speaker as Head of API Experience & Operations.

As organizations continue to adopt microservices architectures and leverage cloud technologies, effective API management becomes paramount. API federation aims to provide a centralized approach to managing and orchestrating APIs across diverse environments to keep pace with the ever-increasing need to manage our APIs closely. API Federation is a fundamental part of modern API management.

The TL/DR of it all is that API Federation provides a unified and consistent interface for external users while promoting flexibility and agility within the internal service ecosystem.

With Daniel, we discussed:

* Shifting Mindsets: User-Centric Design & Treating Internal APIs as Public

*The Limitations of REST & the Rise of Alternatives

* APIs as a Product

* API Federation best practices
