One of the largest issues in API architecture development is that the task is often driven by the pragmatic indoctrination of a specification into a product rather than designing around the speed and ease of development, usually due to a separation between the engineering teams and their core developer user base.

Extending upon the ideas of API design around developer accelerated development delivered in the PayPal keynote, we will take a deeper look into some of the great techniques delivered to us through the RESTful specification, applying them to developer API consumption practices with the intention of creating efficient best practices for rapid development.

Within this talk we will explore what we have learned through reconstructing our API backbone at PayPal for our developer community, including:
- API automation practices for code reduction and application longevity
- Open security standards that promote developer integration ease and maintain strict security practices
- RESTful API architecture best practices for developer centric accelerated development
