RAML, the RESTful API Modeling Language (http://raml.org), is a relatively new open format for specifying web APIs. It’s distinguished by focusing on writeability as well as readability, on minimality and elegance, and on enabling and encouraging reusability and consistency of APIs. This makes RAML an ideal basis for API-first development, in which the APIs between systems are designed and validated without requiring any implementation, and then form the requirements for implementing the API provider and consumer(s). In particular, RAML is a fitting foundation for API initiatives whose success is predicated on delighting their customers: the developers who will be consuming the API. In this talk I’ll introduce RAML, API-first development, API design, and some tools that not only produce delightful APIs but are also delightful on their own. I hope you find this useful whether you’re just documenting existing APIs, looking to improve your APIs and their lifecycle, or embarking on new API initiatives.
