“API” is not a palindrome, but when spelled backwards, it makes an interesting (and imbibable) discussion topic to pair with embeddable video meetings. In this session of APIs and IPAs, join Emil Ivov, Video Product Lead for 8x8, Jitsi Founder, Matt Gardner, Head of Developer Relations for 8x8 and Rex Wang, Oracle’s VP of Developer Marketing. They’ll demonstrate how easy it is to embed video meetings into your apps and website using Jitsi as a Service, and how reliable it is, thanks to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Join us for this short session and learn:

  • How APIs and communications platform as a service (CPaaS) capabilities have evolved to low-code and no-code approaches
  • The steps to easily add video meetings to your applications and websites in just minutes
  • The reliability and global availability provided by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Then Ashleigh Carter, co-founder and Head Brewer at the entrance of Bierstadt Lagerhaus will take you on a journey to enhance your beer knowledge. At Bierstadt Lagerhaus, the Denver brewery Carter co-founded with longtime partner-in-crime Bill Eye, Ashleigh turns out traditional German lagers she loves drinking, and brings beer drinkers along for the ride in this virtual tour that takes you through the process and equipment that creates styles like Dunkel, Helles, and Pilsner, and hewing as closely as possible to the Reinheitsgebot. Grab your bierstein and enjoy the perfect ending to this session of 8x8 APIs and IPAs.
