comment Programming SOLID Principles
Can you summarize the most useful parts of the article here? No need to copy it verbatim, but just some key points would be great in case the link ever goes dead.

comment What's the term for re-implementing an old API in terms of a newer API
@psr I went with a general diagram. Doesn't terribly matter what the interface is. It can be borrowed from API v1.0 or not.

comment What's the term for re-implementing an old API in terms of a newer API
@dodgy_coder This'd be the typical approach, but the principle is the same. Normally, you wouldn't be able to modify API v1.0's source, so you'd create a separate adapter. All that really matters, though, is that your code calls methods in a class you control and can update. This also sets you up for moving to v1.2, 1.5, 2.0, whatever. :)
