Seventeen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Healthcare, Security, and Networking. Featured is an API for the Alan chat platform, an API for NetFoundry network creation operations, and APIs for Targomo for route planning. Take a look at what is new.
Building APIs not only requires discipline; ideally, the process also should be incorporated within the actual development process of the application. With that goal in mind, Zend, a provider of application development tools for building PHP applications, is promoting the adoption of a new open-source Apigility project that provides a standardized way to build and maintain multiple versions of an API.
