The Open API Initiative has announced the preview of the OpenAPI 3.0 with an Implementer Draft scheduled for the end of February.
The new OpenAPI 3.0 specification comes with the following main improvements
openapi 2 3
The Open API Initiative, the organization responsible for developing the specification, plans to have the first Implementer Draft by the end of February.
The declared purpose of the OpenAPI specification is to:
Define a standard, language-agnostic interface to REST APIs which allows both humans and computers to discover and understand the capabilities of the service without access to source code, documentation, or through network traffic inspection. When properly defined via OpenAPI, a consumer can understand and interact with the remote service with a minimal amount of implementation logic.
OpenAPI is built on Swagger 2.0 which was donated by SmartBear to the Linux Foundation with the desire to build a new organization with a neutral governance model that takes it further. Google, IBM and Microsoft became interested in contributing and are founding members of the Open API Initiative. A Technical Developer Community (TDC) was created to develop the specification. The TDC is open to any individual who wants to contribute, without requiring membership.
After a year of work on “hundreds of tickets and thousands of comments”, the OpenAPI specification is close to being final without any other major changes to be expected.

Writing for InfoQ has opened many doors and increased career opportunities for me. I was able to deeply engage with experts and thought leaders to learn more about the topics I covered. And I can also disseminate my learnings to the wider tech community and understand how the technologies are used in the real world.
I discovered InfoQ’s contributor program earlier this year and have enjoyed it since then! In addition to providing me with a platform to share learning with a global community of software developers, InfoQ’s peer-to-peer review system has significantly improved my writing. If you’re searching for a place to share your software expertise, start contributing to InfoQ.
I started writing news for the InfoQ .NET queue as a way of keeping up to date with technology, but I got so much more out of it. I met knowledgeable people, got global visibility, and improved my writing skills.
Becoming an editor for InfoQ was one of the best decisions of my career. It has challenged me and helped me grow in so many ways. We'd love to have more people join our team.
InfoQ seeks a full-time Editor-in-Chief to join C4Media’s international, always remote team.
