Thoughts on API Design and Compliance

I got a chance to do an interview with Pandium about my thoughts on GraphQL, productizing an API, and HIPAA-compliance. They did a good job framing the questions in a way that should still be understandable to non-technical people.

I left GraphQL out of my 2020 predictions, since it is pretty technical, but I am very confident that GraphQL will become the de-facto way to build APIs. The benefits are humungous, and the surrounding community and libraries are quickly catching up to (and surpassing) what exists around REST. We’ve been using it since early 2018, and it’s transformed how we are able to build things at Healthie.
