OSCON Presentation on the NPR API

Shortly after the launch of the API, Harold Neal and I presented it at O'Reilly's Open Source Convention (OSCON) on July 24th. Here is a copy of that presentation (requires Adobe Acrobat). This version of the presentation has been slightly modified to reflect more current data (particularly around usage of the API) as well as some other changes that will help the presentation live as a standalone document. I have also added screen shots of the Query Generator to represent the live demo of the API that we did during the presentation.

Sharing this presentation in this forum is the first step to making our process, architecture and decisions around the API more transparent and open to our users. There will be other documents and blog posts to follow with more information. Let us know if you have specific questions about our process so we can try to address them in these future posts.

Like chocolate and peanut butter, NPR and Open Source. Not only are you generous and thoughtful with information through great stories, but you're generous and thoughtful with the technology around that information. Great presentation and great work!
