Mainstream culture and subculture have a give-and-take relationship. Strong opinions are formed on both sides as cultural ideas shift between the underground and the commonplace. Let's explore this as it pertains to Web APIs. In the world of Web APIs, a subculture of smart, passionate people formed around REST. While some have different opinions, their approaches share similarities. REST is not a standard; it's a style. As a result of this and a spike in popularity, a branch of REST has emerged. This "pop REST" style is a fusion of traditional REST and alternative techniques.... Read more...

Software-defined networking (SDN) is changing the economics of large-scale datacenters. Similar to the effect of Linux on the operating system market, OpenFlow is driving disruptive commoditization of expensive network switches, routers, and controllers. As networking shifts to software control, the entire stack of compute, storage and networking now becomes a software-defined datacenter. Where is the software that defines the network? It resides anywhere it needs to, and it uses APIs to read the state of the network and to change the network’s behavior in tandem with changes in application workloads.... Read more...

Amazon S3 recently announced support for Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS). What’s the big deal? Now apps can call the S3 API directly. But weren’t apps always calling the S3 API directly? Yes and no. Traditional web apps built on PHP, .NET, Java and other application servers were always able to call the S3 API. However, until now it was impossible for JavaScript running in a browser to call the S3 API directly. For example, if a web page were served to the browser from http://mysite.co/index.php and the JavaScript on that page tried to make a request to https://s3.amazonaws.com/mysite.com/foo.json the browser would throw an error. Something like: “XMLHttpRequest cannot load https://s3.amazonaws.com/mysite.com/foo.json. Origin https://www.mysite.com is not allowed by Access-Control-Allow-Origin.” The browser throws the error because http://mysite.com and https://s3.amazonaws.com are not the same origin and could, therefore, be malicious. Why then is this subtle change to direct... Read more...

Mary Simpson has a Master's Degree in Software Engineering from the University of Florida.  She has been developing Web and PC applications in a variety of languages since 2000, and has operated Bark! Multimedia, a website and software development studio, since 2003. We thank Mary for giving Apigee App Services (formerly Usergrid) a try and for sharing her experiences in this guest blog post.Find the full source code for Mary's project on github and see the code running live.Operating Bark! Multimedia, a website and software development studio, I get many requests to build mobile apps.  Customers are often surprised by the development effort required to make great mobile apps.  Although apps are not as difficult to build as they once were, there is still a lot of server-side code that must be written in addition to the app itself....
