The Telstra Programmable Network PHP SDK provides API access to the Telstra Programmable Network self provisioning platform. The API allows its users to create on demand connectivity services between multiple endpoints and add various network functions to those services. It enables you with the ability to connect to a global ecosystem of networking services as well as public and private cloud services. Telstra is a telecommunications and technology company that offers a range of communications services globally.
A few months ago, ProgrammableWeb announced the release of Heroku’s Platform API, which allowed developers to integrate the Heroku platform with third party applications and services. Now, Heroku has launched a public beta for OAuth 2.0 support for the Platform API. OAuth 2.0 support allows developers to control service needs as opposed to offering full service access to all user accounts.
The "Car as a Platform" wars have been heating up for some time now and ProgrammableWeb has published several posts on the topic, including: "Car as a Platform Wars: GM Joins Ford" by Adam DuVander, "Ford Launches Program That Provides Developers Ability to Create Vehicle-Controlled, Voice-Activated Smartphone Apps" by Janet Wagner, and "Have You Driven a Ford API Lately? Round Up on the Connected Car" by Greg Bates.
Until recently networking engineers hardly needed to know what API stood for, let alone how to use one. That’s all changing now as API growth picks up critical mass, which risks leaving established networking device players flat-footed, argues Teren Bryson over at TechTarget.
