Documentation Driven Development

28th May 2015 in London at Skills Matter

This SkillsCast was filmed at Documentation Driven Development

Building usable API's is hard. At the BBC, the frameworks team builds APIs which are called on millions of times a day by a wide variety of developers both inside and outside of the BBC.

This talk details the process and culture we used to deliver API's and some of what we learnt along the way. The target audience for this talk are Developers and Product Managers.

Jamie Knight

Jamie and Lion are an autistic duo who live in Romford. They are not very good at writing third party bios and are a bit shy. If asked they would tell you about their work. Almost 10 years at the BBC working on everything from iPlayer Radio to children’s gaming. Jamie’s current job title is ‘senior research engineer’ within the digital accessibility team. Jamie’s research focus is VR accessibility looking at presence, interaction, narrative and facilitation. Lion’s BBC career has mostly been in antelope management. Outside of work Jamie has way too many side projects. He likes to make things and has a kit car and a number of custom built mountain bikes to his name. At the weekend he works on crime fighting software which currently monitors around $2bn of payments a week for fraud and money laundering. Jamie has been speaking about his autistic life for over 10 years and has presented at nearly 100 events both big and small. He’s also contributed to books, magazines and co-presented a podcast series for the BBC.
