Expiration Dates

Devs, be sure that if you leverage third party APIs, that your keys don’t expire and if they do, make sure to renew them before, you know, they actually expire. And if you do let them expire, hopefully you built an escape into the workflow so the dead API access doesn’t stall the system completely.

Product Managers, if your product leverages third party APIs, ask your devs if the above applies, otherwise you risk joining me in the “Stressful Wednesday Afternoon” club.
