  • It's all about managing those APIs better says WaveMaker

    It's all about managing those APIs better says WaveMaker

    APIs are nothing new. The application programming interface used by developers as routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications has been around for some time. APIs are used as building blocks that allow programmers to write an application much quicker and more efficiently than would happen without APIs. Despite APIs being around for quite some time, I can't tell you how many times this year non-developers have approached me to talk about APIs. APIs is no longer a topic just being discussed by developers but also by their managers and even the company executives.

    Companies, government, and organizations are realizing that managing and controlling their APIs can offer a strategic advantage. Software providers are noticing this renewed interest in the libraries of code and services offered. Here now in 2015, we're seeing a new crop of tools and platforms that allow programmers to better publish and manage their APIs.

    This week, WaveMaker, Inc., a leading enterprise application Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS) software company, announced WaveMaker Gateway, a bundle of tools enabling enterprises to open their APIs to the external world. WaveMaker extends its suite of API tools beyond publishing, wrapping, and sharing APIs within the enterprise, allowing authorized partners and third-party developers to consume APIs vital to their business, and allowing API owners to eliminate risks from unintended users.

    Beautiful at Any Size: Mobile First Design and Development

    When designing a website or web app, it’s essential to consider the screen of the person who is going to be using it – and nowadays that means it’s more likely to be a mobile screen. In 2014, 1.8 billion phones, 256 million tablets and 276 million PCs were shipped, meaning more phones were shipped in three months than there were PCs shipped all year. But mobile devices and PC’s don’t exist in their own worlds; users are increasingly switching between devices throughout the course of completing a task. A Google study on The New Multi-Screen World found that “90% [of users] use multiple screens sequentially to accomplish a task over time.”

    The new reality is that your website or web app needs to be designed to look good on any device, no matter the screen size.
