At the start of the year, as the result of a merger and acquisition, Stuart needed to integrate two different systems. There wasn't much in common between them: the systems were built by different teams in different tech stacks and with different engineering philosophies.

With an immovable deadline looming tied to a major marketing campaign, Stuart knew that the only way to ensure everything went smoothly was to discover integration errors as early as possible, and in a way that would force both teams to address them in time.

His tool of choice to pull this off? JSON Schema.

In this talk, Stuart will introduce you to what JSON Schema is, where it fits in the current developer landscape, and why it - and not OpenAPI Spec (yet! we're almost there) - was the right choice to ensure that a multi-million pound systems integration project went off without a hitch.

Finally, he'll show you how one of the teams is taking the JSON Schema foundation that came out of that project, and using it to accelerate the development of their single-page app.
