Many projects these days don't warrant large amounts of design up-front and are better suited to a more iterative approach, especially when designingAPIs.
It can help to get a working prototype fast in order to drive development and realise the best design by trying them out as you go.
I'm going to introduce you to API prototyping and show you how my home-grown tool, Interfake, can help with that process. It's cool.
Feel free to bring a laptop and try it out as we go, all you need is npm installed.
