APIs are critical to the digital transformation of your business. How to quickly build APIs off your existing services and data and scale up the development and runtime is becoming a great challenge and opportunity for front-end and back-end teams and developers. In this talk, we will go through a typical API scenario and demonstrate how to use LoopBack, a popular open source Node.js API creation framework, to create and test open APIs in TypeScript on top of databases and REST/SOAP services in a few steps within 30 minutes. Beyond the rapid jump-starting, we will also reveal the pain points around building large scale API projects in Node.js and share tips and techniques to overcome such barriers. The main takeaway for our audience is big pictures and best practices to build APIs at speed and scale with confidence.
