API Design Standards with Andy Beier

There are various standards at play when creating and consuming Application Program Interfaces (APIs).  These standards, though, are mostly technical and mostly lower-level than the content of the API.

Andy Beier has experienced the broad range of API quality in his role with Domo in creating integrations with other businesses.  He has made standardization of good practices in creating APIs his mission, with an emphasis on making the right information easily accessible without having to download more than necessary.  He has traveled to meet with leaders in the field to promote standards and to make APIs easier to create and to consume.

In this episode, Andy joins Dave Rael for a conversation about API design standards, what makes for a good API, and steps in moving the broader technical community toward more useful and secure APIs.
