LinkedIn Labs - Building Block Showcase
15 Oct 2010LinkedIn has released an API labs to showcase various internal projects using the LinkedIn API.
LinkedIn Labs hosts a small set of projects and experimental features built by the employees of LinkedIn. They are published demonstrations and intended to be low-maintenance experiments and may be added and removed over time based on popularity and support.
Four projects the Labs showcases are:
- NewIn - This application shows new members joining LinkedIn from around the world.
- ChromeIn - Integrate LinkedIn directly into Google Chrome. Easy access to your LinkedIn updates, anytime.
- Signal - Signal is aimed at making it easy for all professionals to glean the most relevant insights from the never-ending stream of status updates and news. An API Labs is a great way to showcase experimental and innovative projects that utilize your API.
An API Labs environment can be extended to your API developers and partners as well. This is a great way to encourage innovation and building community around your API.
