The Amiable API

by martin on September 23rd, 2011

Ferenc Mihaly has created a blog called The Amiable API dedicated to designing developer-friendly APIs. This web site grew out of a set of internal guidelines that Ferenc produced for his company and ultimately decided to publish in a blog format. Some of his recent posts include: Choosing memorable names, Striving for consistency, Keeping it simple, Considering the perspective of the caller, and Why developer-friendliness is central to API design.

An Application Programming Interface (API) provides a logical interface to a piece of software and hides its internal details. This website is dedicated to a book on designing APIs for C++ and includes articles and links on API development.


The book is accompanied by a source code package that contains many of the examples in the text. Download it for free.
