About the Book
Our fourth e-book, The API Lifecycle, presents an agile process for managing the life of an API - the secret sauce to help establish quality standards for all API and microservice providers. This knowledge informs one on how to excel their API, picturing a holistic model of the API as a business and product. From conception to deprecation, this resource outlines unique step-by-step instructions on market research, strategy, construction, promotion, and updating your API. Inspired by experienced API consultants Andreas Krohn and Travis Spencer, the API lifecycle diagram is an agile process for managing the life of an API and is composed of four distinct phases: Analysis, Development, Operations, and Retirement. Our e-book expands theses concepts, grounding theories in knowledge collected during our 2015 World Tour, events which brought API industry experts together to discuss different stages of the API Lifecycle. We also delved deeper into these ideas within our blog, interviewing leading web API figures, and performing additional research to create a comprehensive view of the Lifecycle for a commercialized web API.
