Building a successful API requires more than just coding.
It starts with collaborative design, focuses on creating a great developer experience, and ends with getting your company on board, maintaining consistency, and maximizing your API’s profitability.
In the API Intersection, you’ll learn from experienced API practitioners who transformed their organizations, and get tangible advice to build quality APIs with collaborative API-first design.
Jason Harmon and Adam Duvander bring over a decade of industry-recognized REST API experience to discuss topics around API design, governance, identity/auth versioning, and more.
They’ll answer listener questions, and discuss best practices on API design (definition, modeling, grammar), Governance (multi-team design, reviewing new API’s), Platform Transformation (culture, internal education, versioning) and more.
They’ll also chat with experienced API practitioners from a wide array of industries to draw out practical takeaways and insights you can use.
