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!
