This week I wrote a piece on "Becoming 'API First'" for SD Times. It's all about why developers should not be constrained by "Automatic WSDL Generation" style APIs which are generated for them, but instead to design the API first, and then map it back to the implementation. When you becoming "API First", you can design your API at the outset for mobile usage, for versioning, and for intuitive usage. To accompany the article we designed an infographic poster, shown below. You can get a limited edition high quality print copy of the poster by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “API First Infographic”.
