Hey! Great write up.

One point that i’m not sure about is jumping into coding the API. What’s your take on writing an OpenAPI and getting feedback on that? That way you’re iterating on a spec instead of code.

Thank you!
I think that is definitely a good idea, especially in the beginning. In the talk, Bloch also suggests writing to the API as a part of developing it. That way you can get a sense of how it is to use the API while you're designing it.
I hope that makes sense
