This presentation was recorded at the 2014 Nordic APIs Platform Summit in Stockholm.
It is known that an API designer’s goal has evolved to a more developer-centric model. However, the design process has evolved at a slower pace, often resulting in an interface that under-delivers on the initial usability goal.
Is there an opportunity to improve our design methods to reflect this new focus on usage? Ronnie Mitra’s talk will explore the nature of design, the shift in perspective that is needed and identify experimental techniques and tooling that could improve the conventional API design process.
