How the API Platform Conference 2024 programming was designed #

A call for proposal was open throughout the winter and closed on March 29. We received over hundreds of talk submissions, and our editorial board convened at the beginning of April to review them. It's worth noting that a small portion of the speakers were also invited. The API Platform Conference is still a relatively young "niche" event, and it's important for us to strike the right balance between diversity, renowned and new speakers, topics and levels of talks. 

Performance, Architecture, Best Practices and AI on the Agenda #

Here are a few speakers and topics you'll have the opportunity to discover in September:

  • Matt Holt, the author of the Caddy web server, returns to Lille for the second time to present the conference Maximizing your APIs in Production with the Caddy Web Server, demonstrating how Caddy (API Platform’s web server) features can enhance the strength of your website.
