API Design as an Art

As developers, we are constantly interacting with APIs. Good ones can make feature iterations a breeze, and bad ones can waste hours of developer productivity. But we rarely stop to consider how they fit into our own work or how to be cognizant of potential design pitfalls. Using AutoDispose, an open source reactive tool for automatic stream disposal, as a case study, this talk will evaluate strategies and best practices for iteratively fine tuning real world APIs for better testing and the overall developer experience of your consumers.
