Single purpose API
In the past, if you wanted to build apps in minutes, you could rely on the Firebase API to do the hard work for you. But when it came to time to deploying the code, you were on your own.

Amazon has unveiled a handful of new APIs over the past few weeks that will allow developers to target AWS with more advanced tools.
If you're a developer hosting your apps on MediaTemple, then you'll want to get into the beta of the new MediaTemple API. Though you need to apply to get access, the company has provided quite a bit of information to drool over while you await for your API application to be approved.
