Hardly a week goes by these days without an API or other developer-related announcement from Google. And given that they now have over 35 different APIs as well as whole platforms like Android, Google will be hosting their first multi-day developer event next month: Google I/O.
Facebook has made several recent announcements including the enabling of API error notifications in the Facebook Developer Alerts tool, a new video channel for developers and the first Developers Live event to take place on February 19th.
New York City has teamed up with Code for America and Stack Exchange for the Reinvent 311 Mobile Content Challenge. The hackathon lasts from November 26th through January 14th and focuses on mobile apps that utilize the NYC 311 API. 311's content is widely available through its API; however, mobile apps have yet to capitalize on the data available. NYC looks to change that trend with its latest hackathon.
