The UX of DX: user testing in the invisible world of APIs

If you want to cultivate loyal developers, you should treat the products you create for them the same you would any other user-facing offering. And that, according to Jenny Wanger in her DevRelCon London 2017 talk, means applying a UX design focus to your APIs. In this session, Jenny outlines some strategies for making this lateral leap, and suggests some important questions you should be asking.

We do usability testing all the time when we’re building apps and sites with interfaces, but a good DevX team helps product managers and designers do the exact same type of testing with their APIs and SDKs. We’ll cover testing strategies and best practices when your user is a developer.
