11Paths Talks for Devs: Say Goodbye to Polling in Latch With the New Webhooks
Some integrations with Latch require ongoing polling of an API, or checking it quite frequently over brief periods. In addition to being a highly inefficient use of resources, this presents some problems, including the generation of constant notifications in mobile clients due to the continuous query of a Latch status.
In this session, we will learn how to create, set up and use the Latch webhooks to see how a developer may be notified of changes in the Latch of user pairings, using the application NodeJS to apply the traditional polling strategy by migrating it to the new webhooks system.
