Why API design matters?
API design is crucial as it directly impacts the ease and efficiency of API integration. A well-designed API is intuitive and easy to use for developers, leading to quicker implementation and fewer errors. Good API design ensures that APIs are reliable, secure, and maintainable, thus improving the sustainability and longevity of applications that use them.

API-first design is an approach where the API is designed before the application itself. It allows developers to work in parallel, thus speeding up the development process.
APIs define the methods of communication between software components. An SDK is a collection of software tools and libraries that assist developers in creating applications.
An API endpoint is a specific URL where an API can be accessed. Each endpoint corresponds to a specific function of the API.
API security involves implementing measures to protect APIs from misuse or attacks. This can involve using authentication protocols, encryption, and monitoring and managing API calls.
