APIs First « Just Getting Started

The best “Mobile First” strategy is an “API First” strategy:

“Mobile first” companies really are just a front end selection accessing a solid API driven backend infrastructure.

I think Luke would agree. He built a command line interface for Bagcheck, for example, before there was even a UI—mobile or otherwise.

More Responsive Day Out

Well, there’s been an overwhelming response to the Responsive Day Out. Tickets sold out in less than 24 hours! I guess that I’m not the only one who wants to spend a day listening to what these great designers and developers have to say about the challenges of responsive web design.

So I got in touch with the Corn Exchange to see if there was any way of fitting in some more seats. It turns out there is. So the capacity for the event has expanded a bit and some more tickets have gone on sale.

But if you want one, you’d better grab it fast.

Oh, and remember, if you work at a cool company that wants to have the undying gratitude of web designers and web developers, get in touch about sponsoring a pre- or post-event party.

Update: And that’s it. The extra tickets are now gone too.
