<< TiltEffect for Windows 8 Metro XAML | Creating a DirectX XAML control using C++/CX >> So over time, I have built myself a couple of mantras when I work on an API, and it generally is about how 'tight' or 'loose' you design your API. Think of it as Node.js, but using C. After reviewing hundreds of actual SaaS APIs, many up to par and others distinctly . AZR331 Casablanca is a Microsoft incubation effort to support cloud-based client-server communication in native code using a modern asynchronous C++ API design. We are proposing to design a new API that makes no attempt at compatibility, but will hopefully be extensible enough to last for a long time, and at the same time tidy up rough edges in the code.

Private members are now completely hidden from your public interface. I thought I might mention the book: API Design for C++ (Morgan Kaufmann, 2011) by Martin Reddy and the accompanying website  and blog , in particular the articles on API design . As a result, APIs are not well designed or properly built and wind up costing both the vendor and its customers tens of thousands of dollars in ongoing maintenance due to infrastructure costs and the drain on engineering resources. I am sharing here my practical experience with C++ projects, but most of these advices also apply to Java. Http://www.apibook.com/blog/archives/95 API Design for C++. Book Description The design of application programming interfaces can affect the behavior, capabilities, stability, and ease of use of end-user. Casablanca is a Microsoft incubation effort to support cloud-based client-server communication in native code using a modern asynchronous C++ API design. This page should be helpful for everyone who is interested in using C++ in scientific computation, especially on large projects. There are striking lessons in failed software architectures, and it all start with API design. This allows you to keep your implementation details hidden (and proprietary in the case of closed-source APIs). A very tight API has very few public methods and extensibility points, where a very loose API exposes everything and allows everything to be extended. There are two possible ways of releasing .. Martin Reddy draws from his experience on large scale, collaborative software projects to present patterns and practices that provide real value to individual developers as well as organizations.
