Here we are at day two of the 2017 ColdFusion conference.  Adobe are pushing quite hard on the ColdFusion API Manager which to me makes good sense, as standard web-application server technologies are waning in the face of mobile/device based application development.  I presented on this yesterday, my focus being on the internals of the API manager, on researching this I quickly realized that this is a quite complex technology involving both Java and Redis (written in C).  What I quickly realized is that performance will be a key need, Adobe released an opening document on this here which will be helpful.  However as any API Manager/Gateway adds another layer to infrastructure and that can be across a network hop ot hops, we will need to get much more detailed on performance tweaks and tips.

With this in mind, I intend to create a public "gitbook" on the internals of API Manager; more soon.
