{"API Evangelist"}

Welcome to API Evangelist. My name is Kin Lane, and this is my domain, where I work to better understand the world of the Application Programming Interface, or API. APIs are touching almost every aspect of our increasingly digital lives, and I am fortunate enough to spend each day tuned into this shift. I keep all of my research listed here on the home page of API Evangelist, something I am updating regularly, so come back here often, read my blog(s), and follow my twitterz (@kinlane and @apievangelist) for the latest.

It is important to remember, that all of my research sites, are actually machine readable projects, that run as Github repositories, and as I research the space, and gather more information, I publish to different areas. My research is constantly evolving, and being updated, and as you navigate my research, you are walking through my live workshop.

If you find a mess anywhere, please let me know via the Github issues for each project, or via Twitter and email if you need.
