    Era of Open APIs

    APIs are important public goods that must be done right. They must not be held captive to commercial interests. This is why iSPIRT is helping Government in this area. iSPIRT’s work is inspired by Open Source movement and IETF methods. It fits with our charter of creating public goods without public money.
    GSTN teamOur Open API effort is based on some core principles:
    – Like IETF, iSPIRT is not a member organization. Participation is “People, not companies”.
    – “Design is a team sport”. Focus is on building a modern architecture for country-scale technology systems.
    – iSPIRT API Teams have people who are “Competent experts that are completely free of conflicts”.
    – Technical decisions emerge from intense discussion. They are informed by prototypes, not theory. Motto is: “Code walks, bullshit talks”.
    Today Economic Times carries an article about this Open API effort.  The article conveys the progress that we are making. More is on its way.
