Platform Innovation : some key points for building two-sided networks by Sabrina Guzman
A platform is a business model that enables the exchange of value between two or more sets of users, usually producers and consumers. Think Uber, Airbnb, Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android, etc.
The purpose of the talk is to understand major questions to take to account while creating this type of products :
• From product to platforms : main differences and characteristics
• How to build a core interaction before selecting features
• Solving the chicken and egg problem
• Barriers of entry and why to foster positive network effects
• Ways to monetize : why early and why later?

How to use the design thinking methodology to revamp your API?
Almost any digital product should be able to focus on the main problem it tries to solve and accept the fundamental chaotic nature of the ecosystem it lives in.
The best way to address both goal is to have a clear API strategy and to put external developers at the heart of your roadmap.
In order to do this, you can use the design thinking methodology to outline the best developer experience you want to deliver.
