Mashups using the same API (1)
Continuing on an appearance in our last jobs post for a job with the same title, this week we've got two 'Full Stack Developer' positions. These developers are expected to have experience with both the front- and back-end technologies required to power a web service API. If you fancy yourself a polyglot that likes working on a lot of different projects and technologies, this might be the job for you.
Quick: Name that professional network with more than 50 million members. Did you guess... Viadeo? LinkedIn is larger, with over 175 million members. But Viadeo has upped it is game with its acquisition of Pealk, which bills itself as the #1 head hunting App on the web. According to the press release, that search ability is what Viadeo is after.
Innovation in web service APIs is not always technical, sometimes it's about money. Such is the case with Yahoo's announcement that later this year they will begin charging for usage of BOSS (Build your Own Search Service), their search web service for developers. Given that search revenue is typically ad-driven, and that advertising doesn't typically mesh with APIs, this has meant that search APIs have been one of the most challenging classes of APIs for providers to monetize. So it's notable to see how Yahoo has chosen to tackle this: via a 'utility' pricing model, somewhat akin to how infrastructure services like Amazon Web Services charge by usage.
