API Experience is Developer Experience

A presentation at WTFisSRE in in London, UK by Lorna Jane Mitchell

Traditionally, best practice in API experience has been reserved for external APIs for paying customers. But as our systems grow in complexity, internal APIs are growing very quickly, and those best practices become very valuable within our organisations too. This session shares how having good processes in place throughout the API development lifecycle can improve the developer experience for both the people building and publish the APIs, and those integrating with them. Come and hear how to improve the quality and standards of APIs at your organisation, and how to choose tools to make the job easier. This session is recommended for anyone who needs to enable developer teams to play nicely together.
