URX is an API that allows developers to perform deep linking tactics. This tutorial, posted on URX's developer's site, shows how to use URX to let a user listen to a song using an Android device. The walkthrough will show one how to use the URX Search API to find a deeplink to a specific song or artist in an app like Spotify, which you can then display to your user.
API developer skills will continue to be in ever-growing demand as infrastructure for the Internet of Things (IoT) takes shape. The new Xively API provides an opportunity for all developers to sharpen their skills around Web API and to learn how to develop new tools that make use of connected objects.
The OpenMP ARB, the non-profit that owns the OpenMP brand, released the fourth version of the OpenMP API a few months ago. After a few months of use, players in the high performance compute (HPC) and digital signal processing (DSP) spaces praise the new release and have developed many products on the updated API. Upgrades available in 4.0 include accelerator support, SIMD constructs, error handling, thread affinity, tasking extensions, Fortran 2003 support, user defined reductions, and more.
