10 Common Mistakes Made by API Providers Twitter was one of the first to see what happened when traffic to the site came more from the API than the Web. It now has more than 65 million tweets per day, most coming from services that use the Twitter API. Twitter has made numerous changes to fix its API. But there is still a lot for providers to learn. Considering this, we asked developers and service providers to help us prepare a list of 10 common mistakes made by API providers. Our group of commentators include Adam DuVander executive editor at Programmable Web; Mike Pearce, a developer out of the United Kingdom who writes a lot about scrum and Agile; Mashery's Clay Loveless and Sonoa Systems Sam Ramji. 1. "Databases fail, backend dependencies get slow, and/or someone somewhere along the line doesn't escape output properly. 2. "Sometimes we see providers expecting the API alone to attract developers. 3. "APIs are about bringing the scale of the Internet to bear on your business - but what if that scale actually happens? 4. 5. 6.

Harvesting Questions for Content Ideas There's no denying it: coming up with solid topic ideas for content and linkable assets on a consistent basis is hard work. Using keyword tools to unearth keyword ideas that are proven to drive traffic is one effective and time-honored method of topic discovery. Another is using popular questions to fuel content ideation. Leveraging Q&A-driven content is a high value strategy for few reasons. Sourcing popular questions means you're targeting topics that have some level of inherent demand already, so the guesswork and much of the risk is eliminated.Problem-solving content is well-aligned with query intent, which equals a positive user experience, better engagement signals and a higher likelihood for sharing and links.An entire online empire of sites has been built on Q&A-driven content, which to me shows that the public is hungry for problem-solving content. So where and how do you find popular questions for your niche to build content around? Quora Yahoo Answers LinkedIn Answers
OverAPI.com | Collecting all the cheat sheets Introduction to Design Patterns Using PHP Introduction to Design Patterns Using PHP(Page 1 of 2 ) What are Design Patterns Design Patterns are simply defined solutions to common problems. Design patterns are not created by someone who sits in a room and decides to make a design pattern instead design patterns are proven solutions that are implemented over and over again through different projects. This re-use of the solution itself becomes a pattern. Don't be intimidated by the fancy names given to design patterns, such as façade, singleton or observer, they are exactly that just fancy names given to repeatable solutions. What Design Patterns Are NOT A design pattern is NOT a template rather a proposed solution that is not implementation specific. Why Use Design Patterns Most PHP developers may first ask why use Design Patterns or why design in the first place. Yes this is probably true if you work alone on small projects. Using Design Patterns with PHP Here is the UML diagram: Possible code for a member sign up form would be:
Circle of Trust « D3 Circle of Trust How asymmetric is your relationship network at Google Plus? Is there a way to visualize how each person is using and constructing this social environment? With these two questions in mind, we want to give you a good real example of how the brand new Google+ API can be used now at its early stages. The idea came from something that our friend Jack Byrnes, character of the movie Meet the Parents, likes to call The Circle of Trust. It all boils down to this: Green are the people you have circled and they have circled you back, yellow is for people that you cared to circle but they didn’t, and red is for people that have circled you but you didn’t care to circle back. The Circle of Trust is an interface data-visualization experiment using Google+ API and HTML5.Check it out!
Digital backlot A digital backlot (also known as a virtual backlot) is a motion picture set that is neither a genuine location shoot nor physical (i.e. hand-built) sets on the soundstages; the shooting takes place entirely on a stage with a blank background (often a greenscreen) that will have an artificial environment put in during post-production. It is often used in futuristic films to achieve what would otherwise be too expensive or outright impossible to build as a real set. Notable films Among the first films to introduce the technique was Mini Moni the Movie by Shinji Higuchi in 2002, predated by Rest In Peace by Stolpskott Film (2000). Others include: Released Upcoming Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (United States 2014) – Co-directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller. See also References

API Evangelist My 25 Favorite Programming Quotes that are Funny too | JournalDev Recently I was looking for some good programming quotes for one of my presentation. I was amazed to find that there are some good programming quotes that are really funny and need some brains to figure out the fun part. Here are 25 of them I like in random order. The best thing about a boolean is even if you are wrong, you are only off by a bit. (Anonymous) Without requirements or design, programming is the art of adding bugs to an empty text file. Before software can be reusable it first has to be usable. The best method for accelerating a computer is the one that boosts it by 9.8 m/s2. I think Microsoft named .Net so it wouldn’t show up in a Unix directory listing. If builders built buildings the way programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker that came along wound destroy civilization. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works. Ready, fire, aim: the fast approach to software development. It’s not a bug – it’s an undocumented feature.
