API Integration Pain

Hey dev friends: we are trying to quantify the actual costs of API integrations and maintenance. We know how painful this has been for us, but there is surprisingly little general data out there besides tons of ranty blog posts. So we're asking for your help to spend 3 minutes on this survey so that we can gather the good stuff.

The disclosure:

  • We are a startup trying to make all this pain disappear for your benefit (and yes, for free to you, we hope)
  • But we're having trouble proving with numbers that this pain exists, which is why we've thrown up this survey
  • Since you're helping us, we promise to make the results from the survey public
  • The three of us have been long time lurkers, but apparently none of us has decent karma here. Wow, we suck.
