Community Articles Building for Team Success with Content-Powered Apps

There is a powerful trend happening in application development.  It is a shift from building and managing application services to leveraging APIs for focused application services.  Cosmic is taking this empowering concept to data and file management and allowing cross-functional teams to build quality apps faster, together. To further illustrate this point, Tony Spiro, co-founder and CEO of Cosmic, presented "Building for Team Success with Content-Powered Apps" at the React JS Dallas Meetup on Tuesday May 8, 2018. 

React JS Dallas is an innovative bunch of front end developers comprised of corporate in-house developers, community leaders in the Dev Bootcamp verticals as well as freelancers, agency devs and technical evangelists. Last night's meetup was held at Pearl Technology Holdings and featured speakers from DevMountain and Cosmic. The full video is embedded below and runs approximately 43 minutes.
