About the Book
At Nordic APIs, we pay special attention to the overall strategy behind Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). And time and time again, we've found that quality developer experience truly sets apart favorite services with high adoption from the underperforming ones. So, how can you design a great API experience?
In this volume, we've collected our top-performing articles on developer experience. We'll look into tips to streamline the discovery and onboarding process, as well as ways to make your API more self-service. We cover best practices around documentation, sandboxes, and sample code. We'll also explore some particular design traits to keep consistent to retain happy users.
As APIs surge in importance across the industry, DX has become a competitive edge. If you have an API-as-a-Product or want to improve usability for your internal microservices, honing in on developer experience is becoming more and more important. And although our focus will be API developer experience, these traits could be applied to increasing developer satisfaction across all flavors of software services.
