Daily API RoundUp: EventDay, KickFire, Ola, Baidu OCR

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or Source Code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb’s directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there’s a listing in one of our directories that you’d like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

Seven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in Transportation, Events, OCR and other categories. We've summarized them here.


EventDay creates proprietary platforms for event management apps. The EventDay API gives developers tools for managing event data for streaming through the Platform. With the API, developers get access to a portfolio of event management tools for details such as rooms, speakers, sessions, tickets, sponsors and more.
