Typically I've always been a front-end developer as well as a project manager so integrating with APIs I haven't had much experience in. I set myself a challenge to integrate with Google Maps API, firstly to say I've integrated with an API and secondly to use it to create something pretty cool!
All of my pins are CMS managed in Craft CMS, I've structured the code to pick up the longitude and latitute and I can specify which pin type I would like, a red pin image or a purple heart emoji with a simply dropdown. By having these values as CMS managed I can easily update my map without having to make code changes, push to GitHub and deploy to production.
