This C++ library for Windows interfaces with the Bloomberg API. The Bloomberg API provides free, unrestricted access to raw financial data on current market trades (either real-time or delayed), reference data on historical information, and records of intraday trading. As part of their Open Market Data Initiative the library is offered under a "free-use" license, which allows unrestricted access to the interface's header files, documentation, and programming examples. Extensive documentation, including code examples, is available in the Developer Documentation and at the API website.
PollDaddy, one of the most popular online poll and survey creation services, recently opened their new API to the public. The basic PollDaddy service provides free accounts for creating polls and surveys, or a Pro upgrade that eliminates sponsored links and allows higher numbers of survey responses than the free version. Now with the API, the core poll creation and reporting services are available to developers (details at our PollDaddy API profile).
Somewhere out there is a singer-songwriter who could use your code. And who knows, that artist--or one of the other more than 10,000 on ArtistData--might even pay you for it.
ArtistData is a site to help musicians store their information and reach out to fans in the shortest amount of time. For example, enter tour dates once, then publish to MySpace, your website and send local media alerts.
