APIs became so valuable it comprises an oversized part of several businesses’ revenue. Major companies like Google, eBay, Salesforce.com, Amazon, and Expedia are simply many of the businesses that build money from their APIs.
API stands for application program Interface. It refers to a group of tools, protocols or routines used for building applications. An API informs software how it should interact.
In other words, APIs are all about connection, and it’s a way to integrate data from one source into another source, such as a web service or mobile app.
An API defines functionalities that are independent of their various implementations, which allows those implementations and definitions to vary without compromising one another. Therefore, a decent API makes it easier to develop a program by providing the building blocks.
APIs allow developers to save lots of time by taking advantage of a platform’s implementation to try to work. This helps to reduce the number of code developers need to produce, and it helps produce a lot of consistency across apps for constant platform. APIs can control access to hardware and software resources.
Programmers tend to solve programming problems by more programming.
Now, you’re probably thinking there is no way major companies are handing out their valuable code and technology. But, you might be afraid that just about each major tech company think Facebook and Dropbox, simply to name a couple is giving away insights into their code and platforms, and this is what actually makes APIs so good.
Our Internet experience runs on APIs. Instead of accessing four different companies four separate times, we use one software to access all four at the same time.
There are various types of APIs, for example, you must have heard of Java APIs, or interfaces inside classes that allow objects talk over with one another within the Java programing language. Along with program-centric APIs, there are also internet APIs like the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), Remote Procedure call (RPC), and maybe the most popular at least in name Representational State Transfer (REST). There are 15,000 publicly available APIs, according to Programmable web, and many thousands of more personal APIs that companies use to expand their internal and external capabilities.
We already rely on APIs so much without us knowing. Whether we use an app to view current traffic or to check the weather, these apps frequently rely on APIs to pull apps data. With all co-dependence, it opens up realms of opportunities for applications to become integrated. It also allows developers and technology to advance much faster, because the internet and applications share information with each other.
There are currently over 15,000 public APIs available today and that number is expected to quadruple in the next four years, the opportunities for innovation are going to be endless.
We should not fear the future of APIs, but rather embrace the road, and let’s see where it takes us.
