Big Board is a tool that consolidates point-in-time events from collaborative work environments, chat services, calendars, and other apps into a single analytical display of cumulative activity. It can be used for project management, understanding team workflow, and as a launchpad for work. In order to connect custom applications, developers working in PHP can use the Big Board SDK to create a simple interface to the Big Board API. Installing with Composer is recommended for fluidity of use. The API is made accessible for Big Board users who obtain an access token after registering their custom application.
For any business or website that relies on user or customer interaction, communication is important, and often the only point of contact a business may have with that customer is an email address. This is where email validation can lend a helping hand; as long as mail can be successfully sent to an address all is good, but if there's some issue causing failed delivery and other errors, better to know about it. Email Pie is a free, JSON API that provides a simple way to validate email addresses.
Cloud-based messaging app Telegram provides free, open and secure communication across any platform with automatic chat synching across devices. Telegram also provides a dedicated Bot API for building custom bots that users can interact with via messages and commands to perform predefined tasks.
