Over the last few years we've heard again and again that the developer experience (DX) is an important part of good API design. But, there is a shortage of advice on the specific steps you need to take to achieve a good API DX.

In this talk we'll explore some specific design practices that you can use to design high value APIs that fit your context and situation. You'll learn the three factors that have the biggest impact on the "return on investment" of design : number of clients, client changeability and complexity. As well as the practical steps you can follow to design a good API on a tight time budget. This talk will include client code samples to illustrate how design decisions impact development of applications.
