As developers, we know what good and bad JavaScript APIs "feel" like, and yet we struggle with designing the kind of APIs that we enjoy using. But principles of good JavaScript API design do exist, and it's possible to extract them from several key libraries in the the proliferating JavaScript landscape. In this session, Brandon Satrom will do exactly that, digging into the design aspects of popular libraries like jQuery, Backbone, Knockout, Modernizer, Kendo UI and others to enumerate the designed-in qualities of these libraries that make them not only popular, but a pleasure to use.
