What Makes a Good API?

What Makes a Good API?

This session will be held in English

We all think we know how to write a good API, but is that really true?

When defining APIs the most common considerations are from what our payload looks and then from an understanding how our implementation works.

However, good APIs whether they’re internal or public are far more than just a payload description and need a consumer’s perspective.

In this session we look at what makes up a good API; from OWASP Top 10 implications to ISO and data definitions, why these points are important and the implications. We’ll explore techniques to overcome of the challenges seen when producing good APIs.

Whilst we all think we know how to define APIs, you’ll be surprised at the things that get overlooked or opportunities to be better.
