Quizlet is an online learning tool created by Andrew Sutherland with the aim to make learning more exciting. The Quizlet PHP code sample demonstrates three steps authorization with the user, creating next an example API call. The objective of this code is to display the username and titles for the person who logs in. To gain a more clear idea, developers need to sign up for the 2.0 API.
SmartBear has released a tool that it says is helpful for the testing that API providers might do during the API lifecycle. For example, it can reverse engineer an API definition by inspecting existing API calls. However, the experience is marred by several references to the Swagger specification.
As websites launch and web services scale, having a keen understanding of the traffic load impacts becomes a key issue for many businesses. It is a performance function that has been given front page news exposure this week, with US media reporting on the failure of Federal and State health agency sites to meet online traffic demand for information on new health insurance arrangements. Swedish startup Load Impact – which has just established a US office in San Francisco – provides services to help avoid performance failure caused by traffic surges to websites, or error returns due to high levels of polling to API services.
