Quick, what do these ten people have in common: Richard Dawkins, Bob Marley, Beyonce, John Cleese, George Bush, Kate Winslet, Adolph Hitler, David Attenborough and Hugh Hefner? Forget that question for the moment and concentrate on something more important. Zoobank, the world's official registry of Zoological Nomenclature, has released the Zoobank API.
Following its acquisition this week of Smyte, a “trust and safety as a service” company, Twitter has reportedly shuttered Smyte's API with little warning to Smyte customers, which include well-known companies such as GoFundMe, Indiegogo, Zendesk, TaskRabbit and popular package manager npm.
So just how is your App doing? Got calls on your API? How many? StatHat API makes it possible to answer these types of questions statistically and to chart the data to pick out trends and patterns. Seeing is comprehending.
