The API landscape has changed a lot since ProgrammableWeb was founded in 2005. While developers are still mashing together services for fun, APIs are also driving real business. Being a voice for this transformation is an exciting privilege. We're thrilled to continue and expand this role in the community, now as part of MuleSoft.

MuleSoft and ProgrammableWeb share a common belief in the web as a platform. The world is more connected and APIs are the conduit through which information flows between websites and to an expanding array of devices. MuleSoft helps organizations make these connections that power their own apps, or those of their partners and developers.

As a result of the acquisition, MuleSoft will run ProgrammableWeb as a standalone business unit with the same independent voice we've always had. The company is also committed to investing in making ProgrammableWeb an even better resource for today's developer.

Of course, ProgrammableWeb isn't just an entity, it's a team. We're happy that everyone on that team will continue on with renewed excitement. Our directory editors, many library scientists, will still seek and research new APIs. Our bloggers, based all over the world, thirst to share their enthusiasm for all the possibilities APIs bring. That thirst is rivaled by that of our community of readers. It's your desire for independent news and analysis that drives our work. We thank you for being part of ProgrammableWeb's journey so far and look forward to maintaining and advancing our place as the home for all things API.

Adam DuVander Hi! I'm Developer Communications Director for SendGrid and former Executive Editor of ProgrammableWeb. I currently serve as a Contributing Editor. If you have API news, or are interested in writing for ProgrammableWeb, please contact editor@programmableweb.com Though I'm a fan of anything API-related, my particular interest is in mapping. I've published a how-to book, Map Scripting 101, to get anyone started making maps on websites. In a not-so-distant past life I wrote for Wired and Webmonkey.
