Best practices for building APIs:

  1. APIs are forever
  2. Never break backward compatibility
  3. Work backward from customer use cases
  4. Create APIs with explicit and well-documented failure modes
  5. Create APIs that are self-describing and have a clear, specific purpose
  6. Avoid leaking implementation details at all costs
