Open APIs: State of the Market

by martin on December 24th, 2010

John Musser gave a presentation at Cloudstock during Dec 2010 about the state of open APIs for the Web. He starts with the big picture, covering why you may want to create an API and the surge in new Web-based APIs that have appeared over the past few years. He then goes into the business of APIs, looking at various business models and scalability needs of successful APIs. The focus then turns to design and technology issues, such as protocols, data formats, styles, and authentication.

An Application Programming Interface (API) provides a logical interface to a piece of software and hides its internal details. This website is dedicated to a book on designing APIs for C++ and includes articles and links on API development.


The book is accompanied by a source code package that contains many of the examples in the text. Download it for free.
