  • Make a system that feeds itself. Silos are harder to explain.\n
  • I know there&amp;#x2019;s people who still think it&amp;#x2019;s cool to be clever. It&amp;#x2019;s not cool.\n
  • Naming conventions are awesome. Spell them out clearly and make sure everyone uses them internally.\n
  • Convenience methods are not evil. Reduce frustration internally and externally.\n
  • Convenience methods are not evil. Reduce frustration internally and externally.\n
  • Worry about security everywhere in your API. Trust nothing that comes in from the outside.\n
  • A solid core of developers that you can sound off against is worth its weight in gold. It also builds out your first evangelists.\n
  • Too often we worry about the various edges and corners we&amp;#x2019;ll run into. Unearth them by asking simple questions that everyone can answer. It&amp;#x2019;s easier to answer 5 simple questions than 1 hard one.\n
  • Error can and will happen. Be poised and graceful when they do. Make sure they know you thought of that already. Have a document on hand that outlines what&amp;#x2019;s supposed to happen.\n
  • It&amp;#x2019;s our job to do the hard stuff.. otherwise why would I need an API at all?\n
