My next Packt project (via O’Reilly) is not a book, but a short online training course about  good API design, API 1st and some tools that can support an API 1st methodologies. Register for the session here.

It includes a closer look at cloud tools such as Oracle’s excellent Apiary (sorry if this sounds like a sales pitch, but it is a good tool and the words of the found of RestLet confirm this) along with SwaggerHub and a few other options.

A good API goes beyond just the payload definition and I’ll walk through the other considerations and explain why these other areas are important.
