If we learn best from failure, then this talk is your opportunity to get a PhD in what not to do in a Developer Program. Though real world examples, hear the mistakes others have made and how they diagnosed and repaired them.

API providers, share your stories and learn what you’re doing wrong — and how to fix it. API consumers, see where you’re being mistreated and fight back!
