APIs are positioned as an answer in a lot of cases; the wave bringing the future. Not so long ago, these were Mobile Apps – where the quest of making an app trumped the need for it. APIs are the new business and brand strategy. In this hype of creating APIs, important questions tend to get lost; questions that allow for focus and educated decisions during your API journey. In this talk, we deconstruct these less obvious questions behind APIs, and equip you to seek answers at this conference. We present an API inception deck of questions!
A bit of a back story. We interact with lot of teams creating APIs where most discussions exist in the technical realm. They include the battles of opinions like “object oriented versus functional”, “versioning in the URL versus the header”, or “to micro or to macro”. The API inception deck is an effort to bring your team on the same page, and keep focus. It is a deck of questions that are broader than first impressions or quick thinking. They are fundamental to why you’re here and making this API. That allows your team to structurally discover, research and validate aspects of your API.
