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
