The State of the API 2022 reports that 51% of developers spend more than half of their company's development efforts on APIs. That's up from 40% and 49% the years before. For such a bulk portion of an organization's time, do we really treat APIs as strategic assets? Or are APIs still just a means to an end? In this talk we try to explain the current standard for API development and how much efficiency and productivity is left on the table on a daily basis.
