Fast-forward twenty years and API production is skyrocketing. What happened? First, Open Source teams realized that it was no longer enough to drop their tarballs online and expect adoption. Every software project today is most likely an integration project and it requires an API. Second, even propriety solutions, like Apple's app environment, Azure, AWS or Android don't exist in a vacuum. Not only do they need to let developers look under the hood, but they have to connect to other environments. Third, in case you didn't know, we've entered the API economy.
