We’ve all been involved with a project that wouldn't get out the door. It’s important to learn from our mistakes – especially the not-so-obvious ones that tend to get repeated. SmartBear’s Shannon Wallace discusses the traps to avoid – like moving to third party tools when in-house software will suffice – when building APIs so that products can be released in record time with the high quality that is expected by the company and customers.

With six developers working on the API for over three years, the API has now cost over 4 million dollars to build. Shannon provides helpful tips associated with each roadblock encountered while building this API.
