Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the Thinkery API. Thinkery aims to help users organize their notes, to do’s, and thoughts to increase productivity and personal management. The Thinkery API was released allowing developers to further this goal through the integration of the Thinkery functionality in third party apps. To learn more about the Thinkery API visit the Thinkery site as well as the Thinkery API blog post.
When we talk of APIs, the discussion is generally towards public APIs. These APIs are generally available to the public to try out within acceptable API limits as set by the API provider. On the other end of the spectrum are Private APIs, that are equally important and organizations tend to gain more by effective introduction of private APIs that expose their internal assets across the chain of applications. Two more trends “Consumerization of IT” and “BYOD – Bring Your Own Device” are placing the focus back on private APIs in Enterprise IT.
