Mehdi in a few words

I am helping automating the world, one API at a time. I advise C-Levels, Head of APIs, API owners, API product managers, Head of Architecture, Lead Integration and Lead developers about their API strategy and practice. I just published my last O'Reilly book "Continuous API management"
I have a strong focus on Banking/Fintech/PSD2 as I write every year since 2015 the State of Banking APIs.

Since 2012, I have evangelized people and companies about APIs with 2 companies I created :
APIDays conferences that I created ( held in 9 countries every year) and, an Identity API used by 40,000+ developers that has been acquired in 2017.

I also design the API Industry Landscape (the 500+ companies you need to know when building APIs" and I am the head of the European Commission project APIS4dGov : APIs for Digital Governments.
I also teach at HEC MBA about entrepreneurship.
