API Design Aesthetics



Col Perks looks at API design as a style, considering the qualities that might make an API beautiful and providing real world examples.


Col Perks is an architect, integrating any software that allows that. That is why he loves and hates APIs. He was brought up in the twilight of OSI, suffered through the standardized complexity of CORBA, dedicated himself to the order of the knights of WS-*, and over the last 10 years he has discovered what HTTP could do.

About the conference

The API Days NZ Conference is organised by HYPR and Deloitte for the benefit of the API community. This includes anyone who is interested in improving the way New Zealand organisations share digital resources with customers using APIs. API Days is all about collaboration and sharing stories.
