Suppose you have a single-page application and want to ensure it’ll meet service level agreement standards under a certain load. You could build a user interface (UI) load test, but many of these tests don't account for JavaScript execution time. On the other hand, you could build an API load test to ensure the correct JSON back-end responses are sent to the client front-end application. But that has its own drawbacks. There are pros and cons to consider for each.

We’ve all heard the stories about the overnight sensation that took decades to achieve. The “API Revolution” has that same feel to me. Some version of APIs has been at the heart of application development for many years, but as the web application world grew more and more connected and developers learned to leverage code built outside their own application, the API industry began to boom and flourish.
