What happens when women combine their love of sports with their love of technology? ESPN plans to find out this weekend, at the espnW Hack Day supporting its ESPN API and held on the Stanford University campus. And if you don't think women love sports or technology, you need to think again.
RunKeeper, a maker of health and fitness tracking software, has made its Health Graph API available to the public after a closed beta with a small group of developers. The new API provides access to RunKeeper Health Graph -- a system of individual health connections that create digital map of an individual's personal health. The Health Graph provides a record of the evolution of an individual's health, including a snapshot of their current physical condition, how this has evolved over time, and how social interactions may have influenced activities and behaviors.
Check your team, look up player stats and see the league's latest transactions, all from Yahoo's latest API. Fantasy baseball and football are both supported now, with options for hockey and basketball expected in time for their seasons. And the API supports OAuth, so developers could create new interfaces to almost every feature of Yahoo Fantasy Sports.
