12:00-12:30 / Jenny Wanger: The UX of DX: User Testing in the Invisible World of APIs

How you name, design, and structure your APIs all has a huge impact on usability. What you request and what you return in any given call can change your developer’s experience, and so just as we test usability in an app on a phone, we need to test usability of our products. In this session, we’ll cover a few different techniques and strategies you can use to run user testing on your APIs. Learn how to prototype and get quick answers to little questions, as well as how to conduct some more extensive studies to really target future features and major fixes for your product.
