Creating a well-made API that will delight API consumers is a human talent that API providers rely on to ensure their product is as good as possible. This article looks at the qualities a great API developer will possess and how an organization might go about finding and recruiting such developers.
How do you arrive at an API centric enterprise? You get there with an API culture. Then, how do you cultivate an API culture? You have a team with an API mindset. Then, how do you develop an API mindset? Like good API design, it's simpler than you may expect. Just asking the right questions can
With billions of IoT devices estimated to hit the market in the coming years, closed, proprietary systems can make interoperability difficult. One way the challenge can be mitigated is through open source technologies enabling connected devices to communicate with each other.
Now that US courts have said APIs are copyrightable, the epic battle between Google and Oracle returns to a lower court to determine whether Google's limited usage of Oracle's copyrighted material exceeded the norms of fair use. As the final round opens, what is Google's legal strategy to prevail?
Traditional software development saw the creation of large, monolithic applications that encompassed all possible business activities that application may need. The newer microservice-based application architecture allows for applications that can scale by developing small, distinct components.
In part 1, we talked about microservice architectures and how they can be used to build scalable applications. In part 2, we look at what distinguishes a typical Web API that you might add to your enterprise from a microservice (with an API) and when the two approaches make sense.
FLIR wanted to scale interest in its thermal imaging technology so it teamed up with AngelHack to help organize a developer community for its products. AngelHack looked beyond hackathons to connect FLIR's business objectives to its drive for open innovation around its technologies and brands.
MuleSoft has conducted a survey of IT decision makers to find out how things are going with respect to various organizations' plans for digital transformation. The survey also looked to get a pulse on where those organizations stand in terms of both implementing and planning for APIs.
As the API economy continues to grow and the hubris around the opening of banking becomes deafening, this debate provides the backdrop to a dialogue increasingly characterised by the avid interest of government and industry bodies. This need appears to derive from a number of goals.

The recent debate surrounding Apple’s defiance of the FBI’s request to provision a back door into an iPhone has done something that few other news events could have done; it significantly raised the general public’s awareness of the degree to which Apple has gone to protect the privacy of its cus
So far, this article has primarily focused on the extent to which a smartphone's fingerprint reader can be used to secure the device or provide convenience to the end user. But, does the absence of an AND/conjuction approach for unlocking the device also mean that AND/conjunction is not available
Systems evolve with certain observable patterns. If the Web is looked at as a society and applications are its members, we are watching a path of progress similar to our human societal development. For the Web, application communication via REST is driving its Industrial Revolution.
Open banking uses APIs to make services like algorithms, data, identity, processes and other business functionality available to ecosystems of customers, employees, third-party developers, fintechs, vendors and other partners. This article offers four reasons open banking will go mainstream in 2016.
Artificial Intelligence is a tool that can help revolutionize a traditional business. AI, machine learning and predictive APIs are allowing banks to provide for better customer service, fraud detection, behavior identification and more. This article looks at how banks are taking advantage of this.
Computational APIs, those based on computation and semantic programming, may offer a way for providers to improve the usability and availability of APIs while making data more accessible for companies looking to increase automation while also creating a better user experience.
At this week’s PAPIs Connect—a predictive application programming interface (API) conference in Valencia, Spain—Nuria Oliver, the scientific director of Telefonica’s R&D program, spoke about how to adapt big data via machine learning.
IoT announcements are routinely void of any discussion about developers or open APIs. It's as if the so-called IoT industry is destined to repeat the proprietary mistakes of its technology predecessors even when it's surrounded by current examples of the industry's commoditizing forces at work.
That’s the question they will be looking to answer—for the first time in history. If artificial intelligence has a continued track record of enhancing and advancing our decision-making skills, it presents itself as an interesting way to better determine which startups are safer to invest in.
