If you do too, now's the time to show it!

APIs are everywhere: they’re the glue connecting our digital world. We want to unite API fans around the world to share their love for APIs, and reward those who can show it most creatively. So we’re announcing the I ♥ APIs Sticker Contest on Twitter!

How do you enter, you ask? 

It's easy: find your I ♥ APIs sticker (check out the examples in this post). If you don’t have one already, fill out this form. We’ll send the first 100 requesters 2 stickers ASAP.

Then, take a picture of your I ♥ APIs sticker someplace amazing, unusual, funny, or familiar: at the Eiffel Tower or in your backyard; at an Egyptian pyramid or the coffee shop around the corner; underwater or with your dog. The more creative, the better your chances of winning.
