I wanted to go into the panel with a snapshot, and at least a minimal understanding of each of the panelists. This is kind of an all-star panel of hypermedia experts, so I need to at least bump up my understanding of what they are contributing to the API space, and who they are, beyond what I know from my own interactions with these API leaders.

Hypermedia Feels Like We Are Still Learning To Communicate With APIs

Posted on

I’m looking through each of the worlds, of my hypermedia panelists, Mike Amundsen (@mamund), Mike Kelly (@mikekelly85), Steve Klabnik (@steveklabnik), Kevin Swiber (@kevinswiber), Jørn Wildt (@JornWildt), and Markus Lanthaler (@MarkusLanthaler), for API Craft tomorrow, reaquainting myself on what they bring to the hypermedia table, adding to my knowledge, and hopefully sharing some of the findings with you. As I look through each of the hypermedia definitions, developed by my panelists, I keep feeling, that as API providers, there is still a lot of education that has to occur, to not just helping us better communicate with APIs, but also be more......read more.

New Indix API KickStart Program Reduces Costs For Developers

Posted on

I like to showcase examples of companies who use their API communities as incubators, establishing them as a sort of external R&D lab that invests in 3rd party developers who are building cool stuff on top of their API driven resources. I came across an announcement from product intelligence platform Indix, in my usual monitoring of the API space, and they have a pretty cool program for their developers: Indix KickStart – a program to help startups and small businesses accelerate the development of product-aware applications and deliver rich product-aware experiences. Indix is looking to jumpstart early stage startups use......read more.

A Shared, Distributed Experience(Metrics) Layer For The API Driven Application Stack

Posted on

I’m in the middle of processing multiple emails, as well as coming down off an early morning conversation, all on the subject of analytics. A portion of the conversations are about analytics at the web site, web or mobile app level, and a portion of it was around analytics for API developers, as well as API platform providers—basically the full stack of analytics including platforms, developers, apps, all the way to the end-user. Increased visibility into the API layer, and how developers and their apps are consuming API resources, is a cornerstone of API management. There are numerous solutions out......read more.



Showcasing Your API Integrations With Other Platforms

Posted on

I saw two tweets from Zapier the other day, where they were highlighting two separate SaaS platforms, who had integrated Zapier into their own platform. Both Gumroad and Hall took the time to highlight the other platforms they are integrated with. I think there are a couple of interesting items in these stories… Zapier & IFTTT Integration A while back I added reciprocity to this list of API management building blocks, because I was seeing enough API providers, taking it upon themselves to make sure their platform had both Zapier and IFTTT integration.
