It was only a matter of time before Progress Software, a pioneer in the development of rapid application development (RAD) tools, became involved with Node.js application development and NoSQL database platforms such as MongoDB.
At first, the phrase "my API is my Product" seems misleading. An API is a way to deliver a product, rather than the product itself, right? The term designates a "set of programming instructions designed to access an app." Period. We're talking about a means, rather than an end. That's why there are so many different products relying on APIs: Twilio for phone, Mailjet for email, Google Maps for maps, etc.
