in thread Ingy's "Swiss Army Light Sabre" - or, "how do you design your APIs?"

One unobvious connection between XP practices and good APIs

Another is the bottom-up-ness and simple design that comes out of You Ain't Going To Need It and Do The Simplest Thing That Could Possibly Work.

You get an API that's generated from actual use-cases rather than one that was possibly over-designed to handle cases that are never needed - producing a smaller and simpler API.
