Full Spectrum APIs: Lessons Scaling 1000+ APIs in Production

adam-duvander Adam DuVander

There are many ways to label an API successful. Sometimes we get caught up focusing just on developer experience or how much money it makes for a company. We should all be striving for full spectrum APIs, ones that are successful across multiple areas.

Full Spectrum APIs are:

  • Easy to use
  • Focused on use cases
  • Reliable
  • Supported

With this talk I would bring data, stories, and actionable insights from the millions of requests we see at Zapier across 750+ APIs we run in production.
