Happy to see Akita on this list! Jean Yang has established a reputable presence in the industry in record time and has assembled a smart and capable team. API observability is in nearly every conversation I’m having these days. When some people say “Legacy API”, what they really mean is an API they no longer understand, absent of any insight regarding their use. They keep them up “just in case”.
@AkitaSoftware was exactly what I needed! With just 5 minutes of set up (no code changes!), I was able to get pretty graphs showing how everything was working.
But ... as a very welcome bonus, it helped me identify a performance regression *and* fix a bug very quickly!

Let's be honest, #API integrations are hard, and despite all the care and testing, they'll fail at some point.
That's where @AkitaSoftware comes in to help. They analyze your API traffic and give you visibility of what's going wrong.

Akita is one of the most interesting startups in the dev tools space that I’ve seen lately.
We wrote before about some slightly hacky ways to create OpenAPI from things like Postman Collections, using JSON to JSON Schema converters, and a whole lot of mucking about, but thankfully these days there are far nicer solutions around. One especially smooth tool is Akita!
Not sure when Akita was founded but they employ the kind of approach I used to dream about. Very cool.
Ultimately I think @AkitaSoftware is addressing a fundamental issue in our industry: our tools are at least one generation behind the systems we're building.I care about this because I want our industry to deliver value, with reasonable "quality", without chewing through people.
Akita looks like a very good idea. Been building dev tools and APIs for 15 years. This looks super useful.
Will be watching to see where this goes.
So much goodness in this podcast featuring @jeanqasaur! "Take software and shake guarantees out of it"... And focusing on the #API layer in modeling the system is the embodiment of the Maier/Rechtin heuristic, "the greatest leverage in systems architecting is at the interfaces"
