If you’re like me, you’ve *consumed* many APIs to build applications. It’s like magic: data is sent to an endpoint, and in milliseconds the results come back.  Sometimes, you have an idea of what the developers built on the backend to make the API work, other times it is a total black box. But building an API does not have to be hard.

In this talk, we’re going to build an API.  We’ll utilize Netflix Conductor to orchestrate our microservices, and have a working API endpoint in no time flat.  Out of the box, our API will have version control, error control to notify us if/when our API has any errors. We'll quickly incorporate access control via API keys, and include a billing mechanism so that we can begin making money, and attracting lucrative VC investments.
