This is a technical talk on public API design. The audience will learn about the overall governance process with a focus on design, compliance with standards, relying on patterns and OpenAPI specification, and significance of accurate terminology and non-ambiguous use of nouns and verbs. Following a consumer-centric approach, providing predictable and understandable names across capabilities, and trying not to reinvent the wheel on every new API is common to any API program. API standards and design process are true elements of success.

2020 is going to be a pivotal year for data privacy, harassment and fake news.
Despite huge investments in AI, social media platforms still struggle to deal with abusive and irrelevant content. Developers, once key to the success of any API platform, feel alienated and helpless – they want to contribute, but they don't have the right API to do so. Why is this happening, and how can platforms help the broader developer ecosystem build a better internet?

This changes today. Platforms will have no choice but to change their API strategy so that developers can help people be safe again. Join this talk to learn how API platforms are being shaped to give developers the tool they need to enable healthier conversations globally and at scale, and how many API can already be used to enable new viable pathways for detection of abusive or unauthentic content.
