Video: Building Modern Apps with API Services – Hacker Noon

The Cosmic JS team was honored to get the opportunity to speak at Toyota Connected for the August Ember.js Dallas Meetup. Cosmic JS co-founder Tony Spiro presented “Building Modern Apps with API Services” to illustrate the growing trend of offloading core development tasks onto best-in-class API services. Using the recent Story Licensing project as a Case Study, Tony outlines the process of integrating Algolia, SendGrid and Cosmic JS to deliver a robust, zippy search application that met the business requirements set forth.

Developers prefer to focus on building apps, not configuring infrastructure and other time-consuming activities. Integrating with APIs that offload core development services allows teams to build apps faster and take advantage of the API communities’ iterations to make their products better, often solving use cases your team may run into real-time.
