Developer Experience Matters

In my latest post on the Mashery API Strategy blog, I explain why developer experience matters and why you should spend as much time, money and effort ensuring you have great API design and documentation as you do on your web site’s UI and UX design. I also make the somewhat controversial claim that, just because you built your application in an MVC framework like Ruby on Rails or Cake PHP, you don’t really have a good API. No matter what the designers of those frameworks say, you can not get a good API for free.

I welcome your shocked and awed reactions.
