We talk a lot about documentation and how to improve the developer experience. But what about when your users aren’t developers or are brand new to coding? More and more creatives and beginning coders are using API’s for use cases you might not have ever imagined. This talk will go over tips for presenting your API to an audience you might not have thought your work would appeal to, sharing concerns and pain points directly from people who have struggled with usability. Going a step beyond best practices for documentation, we will also review how best to design your documentation layout to be inclusive of myriad user backgrounds, using the DataMade Open City Data API as an example.
