The open specification for defining asynchronous APIs gains momentum, seeks neutral
home for open governance, community growth and industry adoption

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 30, 2021 – The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit
organization enabling mass innovation through open source, today announced it will
host the AsyncAPI Initiative. AsyncAPI is a specification and a suite of open source tools that work with asynchronous APIs and event-driven architectures. It is the fastest-
growing API specification according to a recent developer survey, tripling in production usage from 2019 to 2020.

Founding sponsors of the AsyncAPI Initiative include Ably Realtime, Apideck, Bump,
IQVIA Technologies, Slack, Solace, and TIBCO, and AsyncAPI recently announced a
partnership with Postman. Today, AsyncAPI is in production at Adidas, PayPal,

“As the growth of AsyncAPI skyrocketed, it became clear to us that we needed to find a
neutral, trusted home for its ongoing development. The Linux Foundation is without
question the leader in bringing together interested communities to advance technology
and accelerate adoption in an open way,” said Fran Méndez, who created AsyncAPI in
2016. “This natural next step for the project really represents the maturity and strength
of AsyncAPI. We expect the open governance model architected and standardized by
the Linux Foundation will ensure the initiative continues to thrive.”

AsyncAPI helps unify documentation automation and code generation, as well as
managing, testing, and monitoring asynchronous APIs. It provides language for
describing the interface of event-driven systems regardless of the underlying
technology and supports the full development cycle of event-driven
architecture. AsyncAPI is considered a sister project of the OpenAPI Initiative, which is
focused on synchronous REST communication and is also hosted by the Linux

“The Linux Foundation is pleased to provide a forum where individuals and
organizations can come together to advance AsyncAPI and nurture collaboration in a
neutral forum that can support the kind of growth this community is experiencing,” said
