The BBC Ruby SDK by Oliver Nightingale is a user-friendly Ruby library that can be used in accessing the BBC API.
The BBC API is intended to provide a persistent web presence for all BBC programs, both radio and television, in compliance with principles of linked data.
Echo Nest's API already powers hundreds of music apps (e.g. MTV, Music Hunter, Pocket Hipster, etc.). With new enhancements to its API, Echo Nest looks to expand its reach beyond the music industry by "us[ing] music to drive non-music apps." Echo Nest added "Taste Profile Similarity" and an "affinity prediction" system to its existing platform. With the new features, Echo Nest hopes to connect music listeners to other listeners with similar tastes and predict behavior unrelated to musical preferences.
Successful Twitter engagement is generally measured with the simple goal of gaining a high follower count, but true engagement doesn’t end with a follow-back—that is just the beginning. What you really need for success on Twitter is an ongoing conversation with like-minded individuals, folks who will provide informed feedback on your tweets, introduce you to their friends on Twitter who share your opinions and help spread your messages. This series of articles on engagement programming will show you how to use Twitter API 1.1 to move from simply following to truly engaging on Twitter.
Seevl is a new kind of music discovery engine. It allows you to find how artists are similar to each other and which artists are most similar to each other, among other things. It also allows you to comment on the notes about artists within the database. This is all well and good, but better yet, it has the Seevl API, allowing developers to integrate Seevi into their own applications.
