Everyone is writing APIs but what makes a great one?
I will take you on a tour of the most important features that you should think about when creating an API.
These ensure that your API plays well with HTTP and make your API a delight to maintain and work with.
Give your API a competitive edge by making it great and developers will want to work with it.

Great talk, very well explained, touching all relevant topics.
Another brilliant talk from Rob. I especially liked that the talk was not focussed on how exactly to build an API, but rather it’s a meta talk about the wider world of API design and documentation. Taken back a good amount of concepts and ideas to process for an upcoming API build.
Good content and had some great points, but was pretty negative tonally, would have prefered a more positive approach!
API design is hard - in 15 years as a dev, I don't think I've ever designed an API I'm truly happy with - this talk gave me a number of ideas why! Hopefully my next API will be much better now - thanks Rob!
clearly highlighted and explained key points of a good api, from clear experience of using them and common oversights developers make. very informative talk
Great pace, clear explanations and great content.
