Speaker: Max VelDink
Switching to Another Http Client – Lessons Learned Exploring Another Gem

As developers, we have a tendency to use the first library that works to accomplish a task. We don’t often stop to think of the side effects of sticking with the same library as requirements change. Through a quick refactor that I did because of one of these changing requirements, I explore some of the merits of this tendency and some questions to ask yourself when evaluating other dependencies that accomplish a problem you feel like you’ve already “solved.”
