  8. 8. 18 months later – lessons learned • API’s requires continuous design and refactoring work. • Runtime Version updates frequently planned. • API design not extensive enough before starting implementation. • Keeping API offering consistent requires discipline, it’s easy to end up having overlapping API’s • DOR • DOD • Deploy plan to have smaller implementation throughout Dev - Test - Prod • Started with windows runtime environment but now running onPremise Runtime Fabric. • Almost all courses where on Mule 3.X in the 2018. • Our idea was to stay with current version of production environment until RTF is running and then start using newer versions. • After having a critical amount of API’s ready development gets faster.
