How to Design Great APIs

Build APIs from SQL and NoSQL or Salesforce data sources in seconds. Read the Creating REST APIs white paper, brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.


Parse CTO Kevin Lacker's discussion API design at the Parse Developer Day was the most popular talk.  A great quote from the presentation description was: "To build a great API, it has to be intuitive. To maintain your great API, it has to have great documentation. And to build an engineering organization capable of expanding your great API, you have to be strongly opinionated."

The Integration Zone is brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.  Use CA Live API Creator to quickly create complete application backends, with secure APIs and robust application logic, in an easy to use interface.
