11 APIs (Adam Du Vander)

Session slides from Future Insights Live, Vegas 2015:
https://futureinsightslive.com/las-vegas-2015/

There are thousands of public APIs, more than any developer could use. Instead of focusing on the quantity, this talk aims to explore the quality. Based on six years of research, Adam DuVander shares the top 11 APIs (plus a few honorable mentions). You’ll learn the factors to consider when evaluating an API and the criteria that make these 11 special. At the end of this talk you’ll have a checklist to ensure you know each API and a game plan for how to effectively put them into practice.
