When people think about API Specs, they often think of something written by humans to communicate with machines. A couple years ago, when my team and I realized there were so few complete, up-to-date API specs in existence, we started autogenerating API specs from traffic. This led us to realize that API specs are also great for machines to communicate back to humans. Since then, we've built up a new kind of drop-in observability solution that automatically infers API specs (endpoint structure, data types, and more) in order to communicate with users about their system behavior. I'll talk about the many uses of API specs in our API observability solution and how they facilitate communicating across both machines and people.
