Lessons learned after spending a year working on migrating multiple apps from multiple stacks to all share a similar code base and pull from Contentful.

7:30 PM: My App Broke. . . and it's the API's fault - Shy Ruparel

Utilizing a continuous integration pipeline reduces the risk of failure as code is updated for your application. However, evolutions to a codebase no longer represent all of the changes that a developer could make to an application. Modern development heavily depends on utilizing external APIs to speed up the time it takes to ship code; this creates additional risk of failure as an untested change to a 3rd party system can create unexpected downtime for your application. In this talk Shy Ruparel, developer evangelist at Contentful examines strategies to bring API management into your continuous integration pipeline and outlines how that enables your codebase to integrate, change, and play well with systems outside of your control.
