Deliver a great developer experience (DX) as part of an effective API strategy

 

Overview

Designing a great enterprise API is not easy. Exposing an interface is relatively simple but API designers have a great deal more to think about – business models, process context, transactional integrity, privacy concerns, data ownership… the list goes on.  

For enterprise API designers, a clear focus on developer experience (DX) is often the best way to get things moving in the right direction. Creating an API that developers love to use will produce a wealth of benefits for any API program, such as: 

  • Increasing API adoption rates
  • Reducing implementation costs 
  • Ensuring the program is aligned with core business goals 

This webinar with Ronnie Mitra of Layer 7 and guest speaker Randy Heffner of Forrester Research, Inc. provides practical tips on building APIs that will deliver a great DX and truly contribute to your organization’s business success.

 

You Will Learn 

  • What the term “well-designed API” means, in practical terms
  • Why developer experience matters and how it aligns with business goals
  • How to make rational design choices that will improve DX
