Zynga reveals Zynga API for third-party developers

The API is designed to cut out backend servers by integrating Zynga’s standard game services. Zynga Slots was the test game for this API, but he says the API is rolling it out to other companies now. The API was revealed at the end of Roussos’s presentation during Zynga Unleashed, bookending a discussion about the technology Zynga employs to build its games. Roussos also mentioned how the company uses zCloud, the world’s largest hybrid cloud server to launch a game and grow it to up to 10 million players in a week. Stop the CAPTCHA Madness!

OAuth provides client applications a 'secure delegated access' to server resources on behalf of a resource owner. It specifies a process for resource owners to authorize third-party access to their server resources without sharing their credentials. Designed specifically to work with Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), OAuth essentially allows access tokens to be issued to third-party clients by an authorization server, with the approval of the resource owner, or end-user. The client then uses the access token to access the protected resources hosted by the resource server.[1] OAuth is commonly used as a way for web surfers to log into third party web sites using their Microsoft, Google, Facebook or Twitter accounts, without worrying about their access credentials being compromised.[2] OAuth is a service that is complementary to, and therefore distinct from, OpenID.

Every API proxy that is deployed in an environment exposes an API. The API may be a facade for existing services, or it may simply expose a JavaScript or Node.js application. You need to provide developers with a way to discover, understand, and consume these APIs. You can do this by creating a file that describes your API in a commonly-understood way. There a few different languages available for service description. WADL is a specification (not a standard) for codifying the structure of an interface that is both human and machine readable. Many tools are available for generating WADL files from your application code. Real-Time Intelligence Solutions. Point.

OAuth 2.0 for Google APIs. One of the most exciting things about the architecture of the web is how easily it supports mashups—URLs, IFRAMEs, XHR, and more make it easy to build great new services on top of building blocks from others.

OAuth 2.0 for Google APIs

As more and more people use the web for non-public data, we need new techniques to secure those building blocks. That’s where OAuth comes in—an open, standard way for users to grant permission for an application to access part of their account. Since we announced support for OAuth in 2008, we've seen tremendous usage growth in our APIs that require user authorization, like Calendar and Docs. While the spec isn't completely finalized, Google is pleased to announce our experimental support of an easier way for developers to obtain user authorization for our APIs: OAuth 2.0 with bearer tokens.

Whether you use our updated client libraries or just write to the protocol, you should be able to do more with less code. By Andrew Wansley, Google Developer Team.
