  • submit to reddit

Originally authored by Joan Touzet

In a talk last year, I explained the design decisions that led us to rewrite the supporting API layer to our back-end systems in Python using the Flask microframework to create a unified, RESTful API. The new API layer, codenamed Wilson, will be available to our customers in the next few months.

It was a pleasure to present early results from our API improvement project. The conference was a blast, full of great people and interesting talks. I'm already looking forward to PyCon Canada 2013!
