The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
One of the hottest topics among API providers has to do with how to best engage developers through a developer portal. In this special report, ProgrammableWeb has compiled a comprehensive list of features (based on real world examples) that all developer portals should aspire to.
Geocoding involves converting a description of a physical address into coordinates that represent that location on a map to perform spatial analysis. This tutorial on the Google Maps APIs blog describes the two approaches to geocoding with Google Maps APIs, and when to use them.
Sentiment analysis is an important community engagement metric, and with APIs like the WebKnox Text Processing API, it is an analytical technique now open to any business. This tutorial examines how to use the WebKnox Text Processing API to conduct a sentiment analysis and to create a visualization that summarizes audience reactions.
Given the increasing popularity of mobile devices such as the iPhone and Android devices (both of which include full browsers), it should come as no surprise that developers have begun to leverage the various APIs out there to provide mobile mashups that can be implemented without targeting a specific platform or SDK.
