12:00-12:30 Anthony Roux: What Makes an API Product Successful?

22,000 is the number of public APIs referenced on ProgrammableWeb. In such a competitive environment, providing good APIs is not enough.

How long does it take for your users to understand what your API does? How long to create an account? How long to make the first API call? Do you provide guides? Code samples? SDKs (generated or manually written)? Do they need to write code to test your APIs? What tooling are you offering? How long to write the first hello world?

In this talk, we will take a look at the things that need to come in addition to your APIs to offer the best onboarding process and an outstanding user experience.
