Brendan Callum, engineering manager for the Pinterest developer platform team, discusses the “spec first” approach to API development and how it’s different from “API first.” Brendan speaks with host Kanchan Shringi about the challenges and advantages of adopting the “spec first” approach based on the launch of the v5 spec at Pinterest. The discussion explores learnings from the launch, internal APIs, team structures and approvals, as well as deprecation of APIs.
