Key Contact Rashmi Shetty
Phase start 11 February 2019
Phase Estimated end 23 August 2019



Hackney have produced 8 APIs so far which are using service specific data set. We do not have data driven micro service architecture in place. The 8 APIs were completed before we had published our API standards. We now want our APIs to meet our playbook standards and follow our API first strategy.

In other words, we’re better organised than ever and we want to bring our open APIs up to our new standards.

Our vision?

“We want to build open APIs so good that people prefer to use them. This means our work has to result in secure, reusable, uniform and scalable code. The services we provide will be resilient and have a knowledgeable, enthusiastic team maintaining and improving them. Along with our partners, we will provide our users with the most effective, efficient service possible”
