''Trust is a reciprocal relationship, dependent upon a desire to be considered decent and honourable. Even in the dog-eat-dog financial markets, trust and integrity are matters of self-interest. However amoral you may be, it is in your interest to care about your reputation, because if you behave badly you will not do business with me - or others - on favourable terms again. Trust matters.''

This chapter also contains a note about the importance of trust in the API design. If you broke your promise of [[BackwardCompatibility]] once, you repel clients and [http://www.asiawriters.com/ essay writers] of your API to alternative offerings. It is hard for them to believe that they should once again build their application on top of your API and risk similar problems again.

Are you asking now why some API design advices feel so unnatural? Why they are so different compared to the best practices that we learned while working on our small projects or on in-house projects of any size? The reason is that even a small shift in the initial conditions may result in completely opposite advice which may seem [[paradox]]ical. However that does not mean such advice is not useful and the [[Paradoxes of API Design|chapter 14]] describes some of them and explains why adhering to them may be beneficial for any software project.
