Presentation: The next generation of Google APIs

Track: Solution Track: High Performance Systems / Time: Wednesday 11:50 - 12:50 / Location: Abbey Room

Google is building a new generation of web APIs. In this session I'll share the lessons learned from the earlier generation. I'll cover the mistakes we've made and the choices that are shaping the future. We'll talk about ways to improve the "developer experience" and cater to a wider variety of languages. I'll also walk through our new API stack and talk about how you can apply the same technologies.
