Designing Great Web APIs free PDF Book by James Higginbotham. This book was published in 2015 by O’Reilly Media, Inc. A web API is an application programming interface for either a web server or a web browser. It is a web development concept, usually limited to a web application’s client-side (including any web frameworks being used), and thus usually does not include web server or browser implementation details such as SAPIs or APIs unless publicly accessible by a remote web application.
This book’s author, James Higginbotham has been designing, architecting, and implementing software products for over 20 years.
He blends his experience in software delivery and business strategy to help companies deliver products with high business value. He also offers consulting and Interim CTO services to companies looking to gain a competitive edge using the latest API, data, and cloud technologies.
Web APIs are everywhere. Just browse any technology news website and you are likely to read something about the latest product launching an open API. Companies are making huge investments in providing APIs to internal developers, partner organizations, and public developers. APIs that were once used to solve integration problems have now become the backbone of an organization’s digital strategy.
With this practical guide, developers, architects, and tech leads will learn how to navigate complex decisions for designing, scaling, marketing, and evolving interoperable APIs. It explains API design theory and provides hands-on exercises for building your web API and managing its operation in production.
