Episode 3: APIs and IPAs pt. 2

This is the second part of the conversation with Greg Koberger, founder and CEO of readme.com. We continue to discuss APIs, developer experience, and more.

  • How can you build an API that has a good developer experience?
  • On solving problems for who's trying to use your api
  • Documentation acting as an API's UI/UX
  • What Greg and I remember about being rejected from Y Combinator
  • How we learned how to program
  • Favorite APIs
  • Slack's API
  • A short story about the hockey API that I glued together to flash lights when my team scored on TV.
