Title: An Introduction to API Design

Abstract: An application programming interface, or API, is a specification for how other developers can use the software
you have created. A good API is crucial to gaining market traction, but good API design is hard and remains poorly
understood. This presentation will discuss high-­‐level strategies for API design, and will also go into some depth on best
practices for implementation. API evolution will be briefly touched on.

All are welcome. Snacks will be provided.
