OpenAPI for Your Data Mesh: An Introduction to Data Contracts
In the world of software engineering, we know how important explicit, clearly documented and stable interfaces are, and what effects unannounced breaking changes can have. We use Swagger, OpenAPI or AsyncAPI for this, and tools for code generation or contract-based testing based on them.
In the world of data, there has been nothing comparable so far, and unannounced breaking changes, such as schema changes, are unfortunately common there.
In this talk, I would like to introduce the Data Contract Specification (datacontract.com) in more detail. I want to show how interfaces are described in the world of data, and how this interface documentation differs from the world of software engineering.
