Daily API RoundUp: The Home Depot, Coursmos, meanpath, Pich Technologies

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.

We've added 7 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in the Education, Banking and Verification categories, among others. Also added, client libraries for YouTube and Amazon Product Advertising APIs.
