People get the problem we are solving and are excited for the solution.
A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us. Here’s some of what people have been saying.
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!
#developers, You're gonna LOVE the @Docker Extension for @AkitaSoftware
Ok setting up @AkitaSoftware is a breeze!
Ok I checked out @AkitaSoftware and they are doing some 🤯 stuff. Using gopacket(with ebpf magic) to sniff api traffic and their console has got some nice visualisation. The oas spec generator is pretty groovy. And Yes dark mode 🚀. Going to fiddle more 🤓 great stuff folks 👌🏽👍🏽

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.

I'm so excited for the partnership with Akita Software that Nick Scheiblauer has been driving.
Not only will this work help make our product and systems more reliable, it will also help third party developers who rely upon the Flickr API working predictably!
Akita is one of the most interesting startups in the dev tools space that I’ve seen lately.
I was floored by the what @jeanqasaur from @AkitaSoftware, was doing with monitoring network traffic - generating API docs. #ObservabilityInTheNicOfTime
What @jeanqasaur is building with @AkitaSoftware is worth following. A different approach, starting with not startups or earliest adopters.
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!
So excited to have been an early user! Congrats on the launch @jeanqasaur and team!!
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.
@AkitaSoftware is doing a great job in the dev tools world
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"

Catch @jeanqasaur if you can. Her API tool has my favorite feature: it makes developers happy and, as a consequence, raises the security posture.
