API Development - Not Engaging Early Enough

I was reading a blog from Nordic APIs - 5 Frequent Developer Community Mistakes (And How to Fix Them).

I could relate quite closely to one of the mistakes - Not Engaging Early Enough.

Many of us make this mistake frequently. We thought we have a great API to launch, but we actually do not really know what the market is looking for!

A new development process is suggested:

  • Idea : Generate initial tech design documents. 
  • Think: Add some context to those documents, make them more digestible, explain motivation, come up with NDAs. 
  • Explore: Send to a small subset of developers for feedback. 


  • Build
  • Launch
  • Tweak

Great reminder!
