LinkedIn JavaScript SDK

LinkedIn connects over 200 million professionals worldwide. Because the API works with all languages, the JavaScript SDK functions as a console to try a variety of calls against the JS API without posting the pages to a server. Mainly developers will encounter examples with login, members, sharing, company profile, status, recommend, and people search features provided by LinkedIn. With this SDK and the number of resources available on the site, web and mobile applications can be developed with the goals to drive traffic, grow user base, and increase engagement.
