ICSE 2019
Sat 25 - Fri 31 May 2019 Montreal, QC, Canada
Fri 31 May 2019 17:00 - 17:10 at Duluth - APIs Chair(s): Chris Parnin

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) have been critical to improving developer productivity: developers can reuse a significant amount of functionality instead of writing it themselves and this applies recursively also to API creators. The flip side of this is that APIs are large; developers often spend significant time searching for the functionality they need. We argue for API fluency: the ability for developers to fully internalize how an API is used. The more developers have internalized the APIs they need, the less they need to rely on search through the API documentation, the more productive they can become. We propose an approach to improve API fluency, relying on spaced repetition of recommended API elements.
