High level software design discussion

A nice table:
Do Don't
1. Focus on interfaces. 2. Be worried about the implementation.
3. Mention semantic contract using interfaces. 4. Let subtypes break this semantic contract of their parent types.
5. Service decoupling using interfaces. 6. Be coupled with specific concrete implementation.
7. Family extension using interfaces. 8. Break the family relationship using concrete implementation.
9. Establish a family rule by abstract classes. 10. Impose your own rule through concrete classes.
11. Let interfaces answer all "what" about the system. 12. Forget to mention "how" are you answering all "what" from interfaces.
