In October, GRWebDev will be back at The Factory in downtown Grand Rapids for a highly interactive discussion led by Sloth of SlothWerks. We will draw upon our collective experiences to paint a picture of how the development process can be influenced - or completely derailed - by a lack of team cohesion. We will also explore methods we can employ to avoid these pitfalls to produce superior results.

There are many items to consider including Retry Policies, Security, Payload types, Subscription APIs, Insights, etc. Before diving into your implementation, be sure you understand the potential consequences.
