Discussion on: What would you tell someone building their first API?

To start off with designing and work on the API documentation using either OpenAPI v3 standard or Postman with mockup API first then you head to doing it in development.

After that build your API based upon the mockup API. Which both frontend and backend could do their own thing to follow yours without interdependence of having a actual API be up and running in a dev or staging server.
