    How I got the CTO to pay for Open APIs
    Melissa Jurkoic, Senior Solutions Architect for Amadeus Hospitality Recorded: May 1 2019 48 mins
    Companies have been integrating their systems internally and externally via APIs for many years. APIs are not new, but the idea of them being openly accessible and available to be discovered by someone without your permission is indeed new for companies.

    Laying a foundation for Diversity & Inclusion as you scale
