Postman: API Development with Abhinav Asthana

A software company manages and interacts with hundreds of APIs. These APIs require testing, performance analysis, authorization management, and release management. In a word, APIs require collaboration.

Postman is a system for API collaboration. It allows users to test APIs with collections of requests, monitor the API responses, and visualize the query results. Users of Postman can collaborate with their team through Team Workspaces, sharing collections, environments, history, and more.

Abhinav Asthana is the founder of Postman and he joins the show to talk about API management and collaboration. Abhinav started Postman as a hobby project, and it has grown into a large and successful business, far beyond the original product of API testing.
