The Yahoo Fantasy Sports Node.js Wrapper by Luke DeWitt is a node module created for developers to wrap the Yahoo Fantasy Sports API. This tool acts as a helper for interacting with the API, and adds for ease of use when querying endpoints and parsing responses. Yahoo Fantasy Sports is the world's largest fantasy sports provider, allowing users to compete against each other using statistics from real-world competitions. The Yahoo Fantasy Sports API provides rich data on leagues, teams and player information.
The goal of HeyZap is to be the "YouTube of casual gaming" by giving site publishers a way to embed more than 6000 casual Flash games into their sites with a single embed code. Their business model (more detail from TechCrunch) is to collect revenue from ads within the games using the MochiAds ad platform and share some of that with developers. The publishers using the code don't get revenue, but get increased traffic to their sites.

And because Dodson remembers struggling with Gowalla's early API, the WallaBee API is available from the start. In fact, before the start.
