Controlling the CERN Accelerator Complex

APIs for Accelerator Controls Software

This lecture will provide a general introduction to the challenges of developing Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), and integrating and evolving multiple APIs from different systems over time. It will go on to refer to real-life examples in the world of CERN Accelerator Controls, serving a large and heterogenous user community with a variety of technical and functional requirements. During the lecture, insights will be shared on technologies used and best practices when it comes to designing and developing scalable and reliable APIs.
