API Design Tips


The focus of this talk will be on some pragmatic tips on how to design programmatic (non-web-based) APIs for use by other developers.


If you're a developer of any sort (Django, Python, Javascript, etc), chances are that someone, at some point, will have to take the code you've written & use it in a different context. This is even more amplified if you work on OSS, where people will use it in ways you've never dreamed about.

This talk is a reflection on my experience building libraries for other people's consumption & thoughts on how to design/make (non-HTTP) APIs in a way that will make others love you (or at least not hunt you down & strangle you).
