APIs are everywhere: whether you're building single-page apps, mobile apps, enterprise or consumer software, you're either offering or consuming APIs, or both. There are thousands of public APIs today, and millions of enterprise APIs on the way; a growing number are RESTful, to some extent. APIs can be transformative, to your business and your career. Any successful API strategy considers the entire APX: the Application Programming eXperience. And key to that experience is deliberate API design. I examine a new language for specifying practically-RESTful APIs, RAML: the RESTful API Modeling Language. It's built for human-oriented, agile API design; encapsulates patterns; and enables new engagement experiences with the most important element of API success: delighting the API consumers.
