Cloud orchestration platform provider Engine Yard has released a new "Core API" that will eventually replace its existing API. The new API has been used internally by the company and reached a level of maturity and stability that made the company comfortable making it available to customers.
Building APIs not only requires discipline; ideally, the process also should be incorporated within the actual development process of the application. With that goal in mind, Zend, a provider of application development tools for building PHP applications, is promoting the adoption of a new open-source Apigility project that provides a standardized way to build and maintain multiple versions of an API.
For those who like to dabble with a bit of photo editing but aren't really inclined to pursue more advanced and sophisticated tools like Photoshop, an online photo ending tool like Ribbet may be just what they're looking for. This app may not give you the most groundbreaking features when it comes to cutting edge image editing, but it certainly has appealing functions that are easy to use and easy to access online, allowing users to get really creative with their photos. What's also cool is that developers can integrate this photo editor into their websites, using the Ribbet API.
