php[architect] has a new post about the release of their latest issue (June 2015) - "APIs" - and how it's been made free for download.
That's right-thanks to Nexmo, June's issue on APIs is free of charge for the month! [...] The promise of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) is really bearing fruit in today's Web. Of course, we are not talking about internal APIs but of HTTP-based ones that allow us to interact with external systems-whether its saving or searching images in Flickr, getting weather conditions, or transcoding video. For many tasks, if you sign up to use the right APIs, you can build a fully functional application by writing PHP scripts which coordinate the workflow and communications between APIs.
This issue includes articles like:
- "SPOIL Your Users with Great Helper Libraries" (Keith Casey)
- "High-Performance PHP APIs" (Simone Di Maulo)
- "Putting the Pieces Together: Building APIs with Aura (and Other) Libraries" (Ian Littman)
- "The API Toolbox" (Tim Lytle)
