Google has a lot of APIs, more than any other company we track. Perhaps as part of adding many APIs, the search giant also has to remove them from time to time. Recently the company has become more liberal in its platform pruning, with at least three separate announcements this year. Most recently Google dropped three more APIs, including the Google Buzz API.
One fateful summer 5 years ago, I discovered ProgrammableWeb and the joy of APIs. I spent my mornings coding on the Amazon, Flickr, and Google APIs, and spent weekends prepping entries for the API contests -- I actually made some good cash, student-wise, from those. At the same time, I was struggling to find a job that met my interests. I then discovered this "Developer Relations" department at Google, where I could spend my time teaching others how to use APIs, talking about them at conferences, and giving feedback to the API engineering teams. As someone who loves APIs and teaching, that sounded just perfect to me. So, about 8 months after getting my start with APIs, I began work at Google as the Google Maps API support engineer.
