As we try to build APIs that are valuable, usable, and feasible, are there lessons we can learn from Product Management and how we approach this? This session will be a fun look at some anecdotes and cautionary tales shared by Product Managers, and reflect how they can help our thinking when designing and building APIs.
The concept of "APIs as a Product" and the need for a Product Manager for APIs is a growing trend (in 2017 Thoughtworks added an entry tracking the idea to their Tech Radar) – so what exactly does this mean? And what can we learn from Product Management? From dog psychology experiments to lessons from Netflix, we will take a whistle-stop tour through the discipline to look at what we can learn that might help us build great APIs.
