Azure API Management

Author by Carl Schweitzer

This week on the MS Dev Show, we interview Miao Jiang, Program Manager on the Azure API Management team. API Management is a service on Azure that provides a lot features on top of any API so you don’t have to spend the time to bake these common features in yourself.

This service provides features like rate limiting, throttling and quotas to your APIs. But it can also give new life to old services by bringing modern formats like JSON and REST. One of my favorite and often overlooked features is automatic documentation and the generation of code samples that will work with your API.

If you have an existing API that you are providing to others, or about to make one, Azure API Management is worth a look. Listen to the episode this week even if you are interested in it for just its health monitoring or analytic insights.
