Designing APIs for Humans

Earlier this month I gave a talk at Devs Love Bacon on an API design philosophy I picked up while working at IFTTT I’ve been calling ‘APIs for Humans’. Sadly, it’s not about this:

At IFTTT I identified three major areas for how non-developers end up consuming API data in significant numbers. In this talk I cover what those areas are and how you can tailor your API designs to encourage developers to build human-friendly integrations.

Since I had extra time I threw in a few points on developer experience too. After all, developers are humans too.
