API Design with Mike Amundsen

A Methodology for API Design 

Mike Amundsen, CA / Layer 7 API Academy

At some point, we all need to design and implement APIs for the Web. What makes Web APIs different than typical component APIs? How can you leverage the power of the Internet when creating your Web API? What characteristics to many "great" Web APIs share? Is there a consistent process you can use to make sure you design a Web API that best fits your needs both now and in the future?

In this talk, Mike Amundsen, Principal API Architect for CA / Layer 7, describes a clear methodology for designing Web APIs that allow you to map key aspects of your business into a usable, scalable, and flexible interface that will reach your goals while creating a compelling API for developers. Whether you are looking to implement a private, partner, or public API, these principles will help you focus on the right metrics and design goals to create a successful API. 

Hosted by XO Group Inc. Enter on the 24th floor and follow the signs.  Pizza and beer will be served :)
