How netflix designs APIs

A really eye-opening talk by netflix how they designed their API and why did not follow the trends. Goals they followed:

  • one request delivers the entire data needed to render a page
  • no chatty clients
  • customers create the REST endpoints themselfes, netflix solely provides a groovy versioned sdk to aggregate data
