It’s easy to write an API, but what makes a great one? In this session I’ll take you on a tour of the most important features that you should think about when creating an HTTP web API.

I want you to ensure that your API is a good HTTP citizen, while also providing developer-friendly features like thoughtful error handling and documentation. Give your API a competitive edge so developers will want to work with it.
