More Than a Reference: Better APIs Through Empathy
NA 2014
Zach Corleissen
Recorded: May 6, 2014Language: English

You've probably seen (and maybe even written) API documentation so reference-complete, it puts the OED to shame. Useful API docs cover every endpoint, parameter and variable--but not all API methods deserve equal prominence.

This talk is about creating better API documentation through empathy. We'll talk about delighting readers by knowing your audience, showing them where to begin, and explaining why your API matters in the first place.
