One of the most important roles of senior engineers and architects is to define the boundaries between programs. This must be done thoughtfully, with a firm understanding of what is being abstracted, and foresight of evolving needs.
Unfortunately, these skills are typically learnt the hard way. This course is our attempt to rectify that, providing a tour of program interfaces, patterns and anti-patterns through the lens of a system that participants build themselves in and between classes.
We cover many specific API designs in detail, but the ultimate objective is broader: participants should leave with greater confidence that their own API designs will stand the test of time.
This course assumes 1-2 years of work experience as a software engineer with some exposure to a mix of program interfaces.
