Top 10 Blog Posts

APIs came more and more to the forefront of tech-thinking in 2012 and there was some great thinking about API trends and the Web more generally. We’ve collected our favorite posts from last year, and here they are, in no particular order! Enjoy:

There are a lot more worthy of mention ranging from Rackspace’s neat API Infographic or ProgrammableWeb’s cheat sheet on the metrics you should be measuring, or a journey to the lighter side with Webshell’s {“apis”:”the joy”} – genius (go ahead – we’ll wait)!

What were your favorites we missed?! – stick them in the comments!

Happy Holidays to all!

Establish API creation, publishing and discovery as a master practice with the API Management Playbook.
