A year in lean API development — time to review and renew

Now that I’m writing this post, it has been a bit over a year since the method was created. It took half a year for anyone to get at all interested, but since then there has been steady growth in the interest in Finland and also a very warm welcome in Paris conference and many other parts of the world.

But all things must evolve and impact must be verified, so I’m doing my second master’s thesis, this time in business at Laurea School of Applied Sciences. I will be researching some of the applications and cases to go deeper on how the method is applied. If you have an interesting case, ideas or feedback on the method please do contact me or ping @apiopscycles in Twitter. I’ll promise named or anonymous credits included in the thesis depending on how you want your contribution handled.

And don’t forget to like the post and the video, the more likes, the more it tells everyone if this is an important topic to go further and to post more information about.
