The Slim Framework is a micro framework designed to help developers to quickly create web applications and HTTP APIs in PHP. Slim's router is capable of mapping route callbacks to HTTP request methods and URIs. The router supports pattern matching and route segment parameters.
Isaac Asimov once said, "Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is." An interesting opinion, but what if it applied to...robots? Roboearth is a database of robot experiences that can be shared with other robots. The Roboearth API gives developers access to the data stored on a cloud. Through the API you can search for "action recipes", environments, even individual robots connected to the network.
At this year's SXSW, Mashery (a ProgrammableWeb sponsor) conducted a survey of attending developers and discovered something interesting: They care more about getting Commercial Terms of Service (TOS) than code samples from their APIs. Does this mean a new rash of coder/lawyers skewed the survey sample? No, it's just an indication that developers are growing up--and they expect their favorite APIs to grow with them.
