REDtalks.live #49 – Imperative vs Declarative APIs /w Kin Lane

My good pal, Kin Lane, is back on the show for his third appearance to discuss the much debated topic of Imperative vs Declarative APIs.

Key discussion points on this topic:

  • One is not necessarily better than the other.
  • One persons declarative is another persons imperative, so think about the ‘system’ of orchestration, and not just the device/software you’re automating.
  • Think first about the ‘API contract’ (episode #46, also with Kin Lane)
  • Scott Peter’s and the API ’emoji poop’

Enough words from me, watch now!

Thanks for listening!
