APIs You Won't Hate

About APIs You Won't Hate

API development is a topic very close to our hearts. APIs You Won't Hate started out as a book, with founder Phil pouring everything API related he knew, all the problems he faced, all the design decisions he wish he thought about earlier.

Since the first book, APIs You Won't Hate has expanded to include many articles about API development, a podcast, several additional books, and a fantastic community of API developers. Our goal is simple: provide a space for this brilliant community to debate and share experiences knowledge with other smart people.

APIs You Won't Hate is dedicated to learning, writing, sharing ideas and bettering understanding of API practices. Together we can erradicate APIs we hate.
