Part of being a "t-shaped" developer is knowing when to use one of your black boxes. If I'm working strictly on the front-end of an application and I need some manipulations to happen with data that is being returned to me via a connector to an API call, I may not have time or bandwidth to switch contexts and figure out this new problem. This is the ideal time to just give that particular black box a kick and hope it spits out what I need.
