In this session, some common misconceptions about REST are addressed and used as a means to introduce some of the more advanced concepts. Topics include using hypermedia for machine-to-machine interactions, the difference between GET/PUT/POST/DELETE and CRUD, how to (not) do versioning, and why to prefer formats over service interfaces.
Pretty much every day someone asks me if there's a tool for solving a specific API problem. While Runscope solves many API problems (particularly debugging, testing and monitoring) for app developers, there are many things we don't do. My goal with this post is to list out all the API tools that I know of and frequently recommend to people. Some even compete with us, but the more the merrier.
The title of this post is a misnomer. Developers detest marketers and do not like the fluffy stuff that most marketers throw at them. Developers do not even hang around the traditional channels that most marketers tend to use. So as an enterprise that is rolling out an API, how do you attract developers to... Continue reading →
Among other things, SXSW is a celebration of where we are going. Be it art, music, technology, the environment, education … the people at SXSW tend to have their finger on the pulse of those things that are changing the way the world works, plays and interacts.
Not all APIs are created equal A great API encourages developers to use it and share it with others, creating a virtuous cycle where each additional successful implementation leads to greater engagement and more contributions from developers who...
Le moteur de recommandations musical le plus pertinent est maintenant facile à intégrer à toutes applications.
L'API fournit des données pour générer des recommandations et des playlists de tous les types : à partir d'une humeur, un artiste, un titre, un genre/style, un thème, une période /année, ... La réponse, une liste de titres, peut être filtrée et personnalisée avec plusieurs paramètres (niveau de popularité, type de similarité, pays de l'auditeur).
L'API génère des recommandations et des sélections qui sont plus cohérentes et personnalisées, et permet d’enrichir et diversifier les types de recommandations. En conséquence, la durée de la session de visiteurs/auditeurs d’un service de musique peut être augmentée de 10 à 35 %.
L'API est le plus appropriée pour les services de musique visant à enrichir l’expérience de leurs recommandations (musique à la demande, radios intelligentes, téléchargement, ...) et les développeurs cherchant à créer de nouvelles applications.
There has been so much talk about APIs and how they add additional revenue channels, create brand new partnerships, allow business partners to integrate with ease, and how they help with promoting your brand.
API Maturity Model Based on our experience with implementing API programs, Accenture Technology Labs developed an API Maturity Model (Lowest 0 to Most Mature 4) that helps identify the stages of the API journey: from just having loosely organized APIs to an industrialized program that thrives in the digital ecosystem. Leverage this Maturity Model to explore the capabilities an organization needs to unlock each stage to enable greater efficiency, agility, and scale.
APIdays Master Class 7 Principles to Innovation Bliss
// APIdays Master Classes Master Classes are the best way to retrieve the gist of the APIdays conferences held in Paris, San Francisco, Berlin or Barcelona. Master Classes are a dense one-hour talk that provide participants with the keys to understand the economy's digital-driven transformations. Speakers include entrepreneurs and founders of Internet giants, industry leaders C-levels and the most influential VC in Silicon Valley.

// Keynote : 7 Principles to Innovation Bliss The pace of innovation is faster than ever, and the costs of not innovating, higher than ever. What in the past was considered the pinnacle of innovation is probably very different from what would get that same label today. There are many examples of “old” products that once revolutionized a certain industry and quickly became basic commodities. In other words, we need to be in constant motion if we want to stay innovative. At LinkedIn, our products are the most tangible representation of what we consider innovation in its truest form. Why? First of all, because we don’t see them as products, but as INSANELY SIMPLE AND BRILLIANT USER EXPERIENCES THAT CHANGE PEOPLES’ LIVES. This is in itself an unconventional way of looking at products. So, how do we succeed at delivering brilliant experiences to the user? 7 basic principles.
In this course, we walk you through what it takes for companies to link their systems together. We start off easy, defining some of the tech lingo you may have heard before, but didn’t fully understand. From there, each lesson introduces something new, slowly building up to the point where you are confident about what an API is and, for the brave, could actually take a stab at using one.
