Believe it or not, building an API is the easy part. What is far more challenging is to put together an API design that will stand the test of time, while also meeting your developers' needs. After all, no matter how well written your code may be, without a strong foundation, you will find your API quickly failing.

Undisturbed REST works to tackle this issue through the use of modern design techniques and technology, showing how to carefully design your API with your users and longevity in-mind, taking advantage of a design-first approach- while incorporating best practices and hard lessons learned. After reading Undisturbed REST, you'll have a strong understanding of APIs, best practices, and available tooling for designing, prototyping, sharing, documenting, and generating tooling (such as SDKs) around your API.

More importantly, you'll be equipped to design and build an API not just for today, but one that can stand the test of time and lead your application into tomorrow.
