API Integration


Playing with API is always been my passion. I love the idea to bond with other app and share the data with my app. Throughout my career I used several API to  various type of business applications. Some are very good with their simple interface , others are good at documentation, some got good community.  Through this post I tried to point the quick links where developers can start with different API’s. Also from my point of view I put a ranking in terms of  API integration usability, developer resource, community resource and sample code.
