The definition of an open API is not easy to create, let alone to update. In Finland, we have a thing called "sisu" - the spirit that drives us through rock. So this spring we collected the API and open source and open data folks and started the work.
Minding your developer relations are important for your API or platform.
What are their expectations of how the APIs work? How they get access to the API? Should they pay for the API or get it for free, at least for trying out? What kind of examples, documentation, layout, and content they expect and what are the channels where they expect to find your API?
One of the big launches in the Finnish API scene this autumn has been Finavia API. It offers an API for requesting Departures, Arrivals and Queue sizes from airports but how good is the developer experience?
Developer Experience is not just User Experience, it’s also Customer Experience, again for that specific segment.
Practical examples on how to get more customers and developers to find and use your API and convert into paying customers.
