Common myths about payments APIs
Drawing on his experience at Stripe working with financial institutions from around the world, Jeremy Hoon challenges some common myths about payments APIs. As developers in 2015, we often take for granted the convenience and clean design of modern APIs. We're spoiled by great API products like Twilio and Stripe. It's all too easy to believe that most APIs in use today share the same basic design as these successful products. Yet the world of payments offers plenty of counterexamples. Jeremy will review some common myths about APIs, and debunks them with examples from the interfaces Stripe uses to connect to its financial partners
Jeremy works on financial operations at Stripe. He previously worked on infrastructure at Facebook and studied CS at Harvard.
