API blogs, API Newsletters and API-oriented-Slack-groups to follow
Tl;dr : A useful collection of API blogs to follow, API newsletters and API Slack groups to subscribe to.
With APIdays Conferences, we see lots of API influencers in the community who do the hard work to write insightful articles. But as the industry is growing, it is hard to keep up the pace.
So others API influencers are doing the other kind of hard work of gathering them into simple and worthy newsletters and some even tries to maintain the community by making slack groups and keeping the discussion alive.
Let’s share the list so every body can participate and engage in raging debates 🙂
