A new not-for-profit launched by 3scale and API Evangelist aims to help speed up the process of developing APIs by encouraging the sharing of API code and descriptions. Launched at Defrag in Denver Colorado today, API Commons provides an open source-like, Creative Commons-modelled platform for developers to share and reuse API code. Co-Founder Steve Willmott spoke to ProgrammableWeb on the eve of the launch, while his fellow co-founder Kin Lane worked behind-the-scenes to upload some government open data API code examples.
Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in several categories including Video, Demographics, Advertising, Games and DevOps, among others. Featured today is an API for integrating with the Buildkite build automation software tool. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
