  • 1. Design Your API Learnings From Twitter + Stamen
  • 2. Basics We don’t need to define what an API is at this point...
  • 3. http://twitter.com/users/show/al3x.json ...but it’s worth explaining where APIs have ended up. This is an example from the API I maintain at Twitter. Can anyone guess what it does?
  • 4. (It’s basically all about REST) Most providers have decided on REST. Google abandoned SOAP. XML-RPC is gradually being abandoned. This makes a conversation about APIs much simpler.
  • 5. Provider I’m coming from the perspective of developing, maintaining, and providing an API.
