API Design isn't Just Nouns & Verbs

API Design isn't Just Nouns & Verbs

Say it with me: An API is not CRUD over HTTP. Too often our tools and frameworks encourage us to wrap a thin routing layer around our database and call it an API. While this is quick and easy, it’s also wrong and more wrong. When we consider our API, let’s shift our thinking from nouns and verbs to use cases and goals.

In this session, we’ll step through a straightforward, repeatable process to design interfaces that speed understanding, increase adoption, and make your API the high point of their day.
