An overview of the Laminar Platform

Breaking down the problem

Custom integrations are a deep engineering problem, but can be boiled down into three main functions:

  1. API Requests (getting and sending data)

  2. Data transformations (translating data between systems)

  3. Control flow (if this then that)

Engineering teams normally build tooling to support these functionalities in their codebases:

  1. Authentication Token storage (per API authentication)

  2. API Endpoint descriptions (where to make requests)

  3. Error Handling (logging and observability)

  4. Retry Mechanisms (ways to ensure integrations succeed)
