The Cosmic team was honored to get the opportunity to speak at Toyota Connected for the Ember.js Dallas Meetup this week. Cosmic 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.

Conclusion

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.
