Using a Domain Model for API Documentation

I was recently asked to do some domain modelling for a project I was working on. After years of practicing outside in Test-driven development (TDD) and using it as a design tool, the first thing I asked myself was: what would it be like to go back to the design-first philosophy?

Apple's iOS App Store may contain millions of first and third-party applications, but both mobile app developers and consumers alike have long considered the App Store to be fundamentally broken from a search and discoverability perspective. Over the years, the Cupertino-based company has been seen to be acquiring smaller tech companies with a focus on search technology - namely Chomp in 2012 and OttoCat in 2013 - leading many to believe that it was only a matter of time until this purchased expertise was integrated into the existing App Store to the benefit of all who use it.
