Designing APIs that will enable developers to be truly inventive and business to expand into new contexts and experiences is a technical challenge. This talk is on public API design and governance process. It is meant for technical people involved in creating interfaces that empower 3rd party developers. After dealing with legacy APIs for years, we went on a journey to revamp our API program. Challenges that we faced are typical for all public API providers. The audience will learn about the overall governance process with a focus on design, compliance with standards, relying on patterns and OpenAPI specification, and significance of accurate terminology and non-ambiguous use of nouns and verbs. Following consumer-centric approach, providing predictable and understandable names across capabilities, and trying not to reinvent the wheel on every new API is common to any API development. API standards and design process are true elements of success.
