API Stability: Don’t Break Your Users! a talk by Filip Sedlák

Friday 15 September 15:00 (30 minutes)

Have you ever feared to upgrade a tool or a library you depend on? Did you know that there are many Windows programs that can run unchanged straight from the 90s? Why can't the opensource project you're using keep an API for two years?

What is the magical sauce for API compatibility and why some companies can do it and some tools just break your code on every upgrade? I'll show you examples from several open-source projects - some positive, some frustrating.

In the end, we'll go through strategies you may use to keep your APIs compatible as your product evolves.
