Core Platform Team/Initiatives/API Platform
For API producers and consumers, internal and external to Wikimedia, who need to create, manage, discover, and use APIs, the API Platform is a set of tools, processes, and best practices that empowers APIs as a method for creating and sharing free knowledge.
Different from existing APIs, our product breaks down barriers to entry for consumption and contribution to Wikimedia APIs
The API Platform is a product that empowers API producers and consumers to discover, leverage and expose access to Knowledge as a Service. The API Platform workstream will:
- Define API principles and streamline processes for consistent user experiences
- Amplify high impact capabilities by concentrating APIs
- Design interfaces for producer and consumer to discover and publish APIs
- Team members should be adding to our collective set of notes along the way
