API best practices

Date: 27-04-2023 | From: 12:30 to 13:15 | Room: Moon

Creating APIs is quite easy, and many solutions include APIs to expose data to external services. But API objects are different from any other AL object. In this session we will cover the best practices for creating APIs: how should they be designed, how to get the best performance and how can you test APIs? We will also turn around and look from the outside world and see how to create applications that work with Business Central APIs.
