An interview with Jeff Lawson

Jeff Lawson


In this interview, Jeff Lawson explains how he built a community around developers and why the demo is the most powerful asset for a startup. He also reveals the mindset of the purchasing developer and how to create a good API.


"Design the API first. Many API developers release an API that's based on their internal models. But you may suffer from the curse of knowledge, so make sure you think about how your customers will perceive your domain objects."
