At GlueCon 2014, John Musser presents the 10 most common mistakes made by API providers that keep their API from being great. Along with the mistakes including issues such as bad developer experience, poor/inconsistent API design, and unreliable services, he provided his solutions.
I generally cover shopping related APIs, but recently hackathon events have piqued my interest. This past weekend I attended a two-day hackathon called “Reinventing Local”. This event was hosted at General Assembly, a local co-working space for startups in NYC, and well-known in the entrepreneur community. The theme was geared toward local businesses and was presented by American Express OPEN Forum, which I feel necessary to mention now has an API of their own allowing instant access to small business content. The event was sponsored by Mashery (also a ProgrammableWeb sponsor), ConstantContact and Meetup.
