Although API-as-a-Product philosophy is generally understood and has been talked about for last few years; challenges remain in embedding such culture within most organizations. Long accustomed to products being something that are either “visual” or “revenue generating” – it is a cultural change to think of either external or internal APIs as bonafide products in their own right.
This talk aim to share learnings of a multi-year journey of embedding API-as-a-Product philosophy within PayPal with a goal to educate, inspire and provide a path for product managers, technologists to begin their own such journey.
