The Desire for Perfection vs. Reality

A session at API Strategy and Practice Conference 2016

Thursday 3rd November, 2016

11:00am to 12:30pm (EST)

We all want perfectly intuitive and amazing APIs that people look at and know how to use, documentation that changes lives, and API libraries that write the code for our customers. We would also love to have that yesterday. The reality is that there's never enough time, the team isn't big enough, some languages don't do [super sexy feature], and docs don't change lives. There have to be concessions. We found ways to innovate within reality and selectively chose our concessions in order to provide better features and functionality to our customers with a relatively small team.
