Not Invented Here syndrome (NIH) is the guilty pleasure that tempts engineering teams into creating bespoke approaches to problems that have already been solved. Even having your eyes opened to the temptation doesn’t immunize you from it. So, how do you know whether a bespoke solution warrants the effort or if it’s just plain hubris?
The first Day of REST conference is happening in London and will bring together the top developers and technologists to discuss the nuances of the WordPress REST API. Alley’s Chief Strategy Officer Brad Campeau-Laurion and Principal Software Developer Jared Cobb will be on hand to share their experience using the API on large-scale publishing projects.
The main conference will take place today, January 28, with a Hack Day on January 29th and an API Meetup from January 30th through February 4th. We hope to see you there!
