Merriam-Webster, the household name in dictionaries, launched the Merriam-Webster Dictionary API last week. The most trusted name in dictionary/thesaurus references has decided to make its resources available to developers through the new API. Merriam-Webster is making eight different resources available via the API.
A good API is the secret to being able to test earlier, which means finding problems earlier in the software process. Perhaps earlier enough to prevent the delays, certainly earlier enough to save time. If you want to test earlier and be more effective, this is the place to start.
