Designing the APIS of the Future

Interview with Mike Amundsen

Oct 01, 2020

Will APIs make it possible in the future to build systems that are optimized for cooperation and resilience rather than profit and sheer growth? What is the difference between writing code for a machine vs. all the machines? Why APIs resemble creative game spaces or ant colonies, and why is it an antipattern to create sequential workflows when designing APIs?

Mike Amundsen, the well known speaker and author/co-author of 18 books, shared his fascinating vision of the role of APIs and complex systems in the past and the future of our societies, and also talked about his upcoming new book titled Design and Build Great Web APIs.

The hosts are Kristof Van Tomme and Mark Winberry.
