Session

Build A Terrible API For People You Hate

We’ve all been there – you’ve been asked to build an API to be used by someone you really dislike. Maybe it’s the person who keep stealing your milk from the company kitchen, or the one who asks long winding questions just as the 5pm Friday meeting is about to end. It’s someone who annoys you, and you have to build them an API. So malicious compliance time! You have to build them an API, but no-one said it has to be good. Here’s your chance to get revenge on this person by building the Worst. API. Ever. This session will show you how, covering some of the nastiest ways to create an API that is terrible to use. From lack of discoverability, to inconsistent naming, this session will have it all! And maybe if you have to create an API for someone you love, this might give you some pointers as to what not to do…

This session will be held at at our upcoming event:
