Good day Matt,

If we would like to create an API for the application, what are the advice on the approach? are we suppose to focus on designing with interface prior abstract classes ?

Thanks

You normally focus on specific use cases that you would like your API to be able to support. One good book on API design is "Practical API Design" by Tulach - it's a bit dated but I think the material will still be relevant.
