In our app-filled and services-powered world, having assurance that the APIs behind the scenes are working is not only important to your engineering team, it's essential to the business. Reliable API performance monitoring gives the control to the API provider in ensuring a consistently optimal end-user experience. We've talked before on this blog about the value of monitoring your APIs for uptime, performance and correctness, and many companies are seeing huge efficiency gains with API monitoring. This month, we're taking the conversation on the road, speaking at some of the biggest developer conferences and hosting events at key monitoring forums. See below for our schedule of events this month. If you're in the area, come find us in our 200 OK t-shirts and say hello!
