API Design Considerations: An Empirical Assessment Approach
Nowadays, Application Programming Interface(API) is becoming popular among all the software products. As a result, the question of how to design a good API is becoming a critical but challenging topic for researchers. A research on this topic is carried out with Company A, an international software company who had several API products and wanted to have one of their APIs improved. In order to achieve a better satisfaction of the product from the users, a new strategy was designed to evaluate the API design from users' perspective. Given a list of tness dimensions and personas of target users, this empirical study aims to introduce the new API assessment strategy by carrying out a case study with the API from company A.
