We take you into the weekend with another edition of ProgrammableWeb's "In other API Economy News". Today we give you your fill of Amazon news including the general release of their Greengrass IoT service, the ability for API Gateway to allow for customization of error responses, and more.
Serverless architectures have been gaining wide traction among developers over the last couple of years. This article is a technical tutorial on getting started with Google Cloud Functions, the serverless offering on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) which entered beta at the recent Cloud Next 2017.
Twilio announced Twilio Functions and while there are other API providers who offer serverless function capabilities, Twilio appears to be the first major API provider that, in addition to providing APIs, is also offering a serverless execution environment that’s specific to consuming them.
In a world of monolithic web frameworks, Express.js offers an alternative. It is described as a "fast, unopinionated, minimalist server-side web framework for Node.js." and strives to make web application development for Node.js easier. This article breaks down exactly how Express works.
Which programming language is the most popular with developers? In the past we’ve looked to our directories to provide some insight into which language is most in demand. The recent growth of our SDK and Sample Source Code directories gives us an opportunity to take a fresh look at the data.
Platforms as Services (PaaS) are garnering a lot of attention from developers and enterprises these days for a lot of reasons. Knowing that language flexibility is core to PaaS success, Google has the most popular languages covered in Google App Engine now that it has added support for .NET and PHP.

Microservices-based APIs allow teams to build smaller, independent components of a system for executing one particular API call. This tutorial shows followers how to build a scalable API with microservices using Google Cloud Engine and Kubernetes, then scale the number of containers as needed.
We are currently at an intersection where the devices that we will work with will not necessary have an interface or buttons to click. One of the natural ways that we can interact with these devices is via voice. And one of the winners in the consumer device market in this segment is the Amazon
Security researchers have discovered a vulnerability in the Swagger ecosystem that could result in the exploitation of Web API endpoints when those endpoints or any SDKs designed to access them are generated from a Swagger-based API description. Malicious remote code execution is the main concern.
