While planning out the next steps for my fitness app, the question crossed my mind, “should I use my own API to actually power the backend of my app?” After a little research, that is where I learned the pros and cons of “eating your own dog food.” Gotta love how technology professionals communicate.
As a technology professional, it is important to keep my skills sharp and stay up-to-date on the latest technology. The first step toward that end was finding my dream job. Nevertheless, it’s important to experiment with new things outside of work. Things that I would not normally get a chance to do otherwise. I’m using this post outline a plan of attack over the course of the rest of the year.
