"Top 10 API Evangelist Posts for 2011"

2011 was an interesting year for APIs. I wasn't as good as I wanted to be at covering all major API events, but I got some traction with some posts I didn't anticipate.

Here are my top 10 traffic posts on API Evangelist for 2011:

I expected Apple related API stories to be big, but the other topics on here like endpoint planning, transit APIs, open building blocks, RESTful business architecture and a flood of APIs were a surprise.

Overall it shows me that applying APIs and RESTful concepts to business in specific industries can really get people talking.

A few of these posts were written while I was doing deep dives into government, water and transit industries and how APIs are changing the landscape.

I hope to do many of these deep industry dives in 2012.
