31. Prague Computer Science Seminar
Modern large-scale software development is too complex to be done by a single
individual or a small team. Thus, the largest productivity gains in recent
decade come more from changing processes and collaboration practices.
Additionally, computing environments are changing from a single desktop
to a massively distributed combination of smart devices ranging from watches to
phones to tablets to notebooks to desktops to servers to cloud. All these
changes have brought forward the predominance of APIs - application programming
interfaces - that enable software to interconnect.
Born in Prague, Apiary is the largest platform worldwide where software
developers design and build APIs. In this talk, we will explore how Apiary’s
product for software developers ultimately beat the market by focusing on human
behavior in conjunction with technology, while also discussing some
from startups and Silicon Valley.
