The C# (.NET) library for Windows is for use with the Bloomberg API. The Bloomberg API provides free, unrestricted access to raw financial data and is part of their Open Market Data Initiative. The library is offered under a "free-use" license, which allows unrestricted access to the interface's header file, documentation, and programming examples. Extensive documentation, including code examples, is available in the Developer Documentation and at the API website.

On April 5, 2012, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, or JOBS Act, became the law of the land in the United States. The JOBS Act, which contains significant reforms to long-standing rules around the sale of securities, is expected by many to completely reshape the way startups raise capital.
ValueAppeal is a service to help U.S. homeowners appeal the assessed value of their home. Over-assessed property results in taxes that are higher than they should be. This means that homeowners may be over-paying their taxes by anywhere from $500 to $1,000 or more. I wouldn’t mind keeping an extra $1,000 of my money per year going forward and I bet the same goes for most of America. If you have a website focused on real estate (did anyone mention this to Zillow?) the ValueAppeal API could augment it with compelling information.
