When it comes to API interface design, do your software engineers have a design touch or feel? Many engineers do not. Without training and proper aesthetic feel, your APIs might end up quite awkward or even a bit messy. Good API design is something that most engineers are not born with but with proper training, engineers can avoid the slippery slope to bad designs.
If you want to improve your API design capabilities, join me for some fun, hands-on experience at RootsTech 2014. This Wednesday, I will provide hands-on design training at the RootsTech Innovator Summit.
