The Design of Web APIs

Web APIs are everywhere, giving developers an efficient way to interact with applications, services, and data. Well-designed APIs are a joy to use; poorly-designed APIs are cumbersome, confusing, and frustrating.

The Design of Web APIs is a practical, example packed guide to crafting extraordinary web APIs. Author Arnaud Lauret demonstrates fantastic design principles and techniques you can apply to both public and private web APIs.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
