We've added 20 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Translation, Real Estate, Authentication, and Electronic Signature. One highlight today is the AimBrain API, which offers biometric authentication services to developers. Have a look at the latest offerings.
Today, Heroku makes a huge announcement around its support for PHP. PHP is currently one of the most popular languages driving the web. Although PHP drives the likes of some of the webs giants (e.g. Facebook, Etsy, etc.), PHP has traditionally lacked some qualities (e.g. runtime, management, infrastructure elements) that peers like Ruby on Rails, Python with Django, and Node have delivered for quite some time. On April 30, at Facebook's F8, a new PHP is announced with full Heroku support. On the evening of the announcement, ProgrammableWeb caught up with Heroku's Adam Gross.
