API Science enables API developer-consumers to monitor usage of APIs in their apps, and gives API providers insight into what their dev community is experiencing.
Following an all night hack, a spirited game of 2 am laser tag, a voting finale in speed-geek format (think speed dating for hackers), and with the support and advice of over 15 developer evangelists from some of the leading API providers, the winners of ProgrammableWeb’s first APIcon hackathon were announced yesterday at APIcon. Winners included two security camera apps, an automated travel expenditure app for the connected car, and a machine language chat support client. Teams were given one main criteria (to use as many of the sponsored APIs as possible) and encouraged to unleash their creativity.
Getty Images has made over 50 million images available to developers free of charge, enabling access via the Getty Images Embed API. Speaking at a conference workshop at APIcon today, key staff from the image content service also told participants that a simpler version of their API is in the works, using standard parameters to access image files, rather than the bloated custom header approach of the current API design.
