EBU opened free API access to its database of 240+ quality control tests. Media industry participants have long requested API access to such tests and the industry group answered with the help of members. The data has been freely available via EBU.IO/QC; however, API access streamlines the process.
Geeklist offers developers an online haven to present their work, connect with other developers, and gain credit for achievements. Geeklist's lean staff proudly states that Geeklist was "[b]uilt by developers, for developers... we make geeks lives better every day." The API allows developers to create their own applications and services and retrieve any needed data from the Geeklist database. The API has remained in private beta since the Geeklist's original launch, but will open to the public with a 48-hour hackathon from November 30 - December 3.
