Developer Experience: The UX of APIs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

RSVP Required - Using an API doesn't begin and end with a request and a response. Before third-party developers write a line of code, there's a desire to leverage your product and connect with your users. How you enable developers to successfully integrate is just as important as the capabilities you offer. This workshop is about creating great user experiences when the users are developers.

Topics include: developer marketing, documentation, code samples, testing environments, policy and security considerations, basic RESTful design principles, advanced API design, SDKs, support channels, roadmap communication, and community promotion.
Attendees should be familiar with the idea of software platforms and how applications can communicate with each other using HTTP. Experience with programming concepts and a web framework is recommended. Experience with a using a web service API like Facebook or Twitter is encouraged, but not required.
What to Bring:
A laptop will be useful if you would like to follow along with some of the demonstrations and tools I will show, but it is not required.
