API development is a big part of what I love about software. Whether it’s building integrations or crafting APIs for decoupled web applications, it’s usually just me and the code.
Most of the time, I work as a solo API developer. Going solo has its perks: fast decisions and full control. But it’s a double-edged sword since keeping everything in my head makes handoffs and delegation tricky. And going solo limits the size and complexity of projects I can work on. After all, I am just one person.
