Empathy

Be considerate of the API consumers.

"Consider the client; the consumers of APIs should be at the forefront of planning and development rather than an afterthought."


Empathy

"Just because you are correct doesn't mean that I am wrong. You just aren't seeing things from my perspective."

Discrepancy between points of view


Empathy

How the API is being supported: documentation, SDKs and libraries, usage patterns, change notices, maintenance schedules.


The Goal

Delight the developers.

Keep in mind the larger picture; don't get lost in the details.
