About the Authors
Since 2010 I've been building APIs for all sorts of companies. I've worked as a freelancer, consultant, Head of API, and CTO, for several API-centric technology startups, in the UK and more recently NYC.
These days I'm working as a sort of internal API consultant at WeWork, on a team I'm trying to call Architectural Tools. I help them focus on API Documentation/Specification, API testing, contribute to a lot of open-source tooling like Faraday, API Flow, Typheous, manage our own open-source gems like We::Call. I've also been solving real-world performance issues in prod using HTTP/1.1 Conditional Caching, helping slowly move towards HTTP/2, and all sorts of other fun stuff.
