Facebook has made several recent announcements including the enabling of API error notifications in the Facebook Developer Alerts tool, a new video channel for developers and the first Developers Live event to take place on February 19th.
Earlier this year, ProgrammableWeb reported that the New York Public Library (NYPL) had launched the What's on the Menu API, the first public API released by the institution. The New York Public Library has just announced the launch of the NYPL Digital Collections API which allows developers programmatic access to the Library's vast collections of digitized creative works including manuscripts, historical maps, rare prints, photographs and much more.
Last week we attended Google's developer conference, along with over 5,000 others. The company was so rife with announcements that many didn't make it to the keynote stage. That was the case with just about all of the API updates, including a handful of impressive new features in the popular Google Maps API.
