📄️ OpenAPI vs Swagger
OpenAPI and Swagger are today, distinct entities but actually have the same origin. In 2010, Tony Tam, then CEO of Reverb Technologies released the Swagger API specification. Tam developed the Swagger specification as a way to enable easy, interactive documentation for APIs. The Swagger specification quickly gained popularity, and in 2015, Reverb Technologies was acquired by SmartBear, a company that specializes in dev tools.
