Perhaps your most important online network of business contacts is now programmable. LinkedIn launched its API (our LinkedIn API profile), which allows developers to access a user's connections and anyone's profile data, in addition to several other features. Though some are saying "finally," it's clearly not too late for LinkedIn, who aims to be the professional networking platform.
We've added 6 APIs to the directory today in Jobs, Customer Service, and Notifications categories, among others. Also new are several SDKs for use with the GitLab API.
Wowzer, video screening/interviewing provider, announced the public release of the first Wowzer API. Wowzer believes its video screening platform (as an alternative to phone screening) reduces candidate screening time by 75%. Recruiters and employers can evaluate and respond to applicants in a time and manner most beneficial to their organization. Extending the Wowzer platform via API allows recruiters to integrate the Wowzer features into existing hiring processes.
