WTD Episode 13: Postman for API development and docs — Interview with Postman Founder

In this episode of the Write the Docs podcast, we chat with Abhinav Asthana (founder and CEO of Postman) to discuss how Postman, a REST client, can be used to create, collaborate, and publish API documentation.

If you work with API documentation, you’ve probably used Postman to make and test API requests. But you can do also a lot more with Postman. For example:

  • You can embed Run in Postman buttons that contain collections of requests that users can load in their own Postman clients (perfect for getting started tutorials).
  • You can collaborate with engineers on the requests and documentation by syncing collections across a team account (see Postman Pro).
  • You can import your OpenAPI specification file directly into Postman and have it populate a collection with the spec’s endpoints.
  • With just a few clicks, you can also publish and host your documentation through Postman, complete with code samples in multiple programming languages.
  • Check out Postman’s API Network to see many ways different companies use Postman in their documentation.

You can view the Postman podcast details on the [Write the Docs podcast site] or watch in the embedded video below.
