We, as IT professionals, play a critical role in designing, developing, and supporting the digital campus. We have created and evolved the digital campus over the last forty years, and in 2020 it became the primary mode of interaction for our communities. What can we learn from the rapid pivot to online, and more importantly, how can we evolve our thinking and approaches?
Let’s discuss how we can use our expertise and our voice to create digital spaces where people can thrive. Using ideas from fields such as critical design practices, conflict management, and polarities, we will explore the most effective approaches for providing spaces where multiple voices are empowered, and diverse communities can thrive.
The session will be interactive.
Opening Remarks for the conference will take place from 8:45-9:15am
In this presentation, I will share how our team created a Person API to improve data integrations with core identity data. Using a technique called contract-first API development, our team was able to show what the API would look like from a user perspective first, which then influenced the technical implementation “under the hood”. I’ll also cover why we chose to create an API, and the benefits behind using APIs for data integrations.
Attendees should have a basic awareness or understanding of APIs would be preferred, but isn’t required. I plan to briefly define an API as a basis for the presentation.
Attendees will learn
– Knowledge of what an API is, and why someone would consume or create one.
– Understanding of APIs compared to how most integrations are implemented at UW-Madison, and why one might prefer an API approach.
– Basic knowledge of API design, and applying UX design techniques when creating a specification for an API to make sure it addresses user needs.
– Understanding of what the Person API is, and a basic understanding of how to get access and use it.
Do you find yourself swimming in a sea of form requests? At UW-Madison’s Division of Continuing Studies, we certainly did – and we turned to Salesforce and FormAssembly to bring order to the chaos. With some simple Form Assembly set up we were able to automate the creation of campaign and case requests in our Salesforce CRM. You can too!
You will learn how to utilize partner solutions (Form Assembly forms tool) to streamline of routine requests through automation.
