On Sunday afternoon the whole dev team met up in Stockholm for the yearly coding getaway. The concept is quite simple: locate a place in the middle of nowhere (but where you still get a 4G signal), pack the cars with a bunch of happy developers and drive off into the wilderness. This year we found a cute cabin in the Roslagen area where we set up camp. Once the fridge had been filled to capacity we started coding.
Over the years, we have seen our clients implement QBank to solve numerous challenges, one of which is to efficiently communicate assets within a certain context and suited for a specific target group. In the QBank world, a typical setup normally consists of a back- and frontend.
A digital asset with no related metadata is often more or less useless, carrying little or no value for an organisation beyond its creation and first use.
Continuing on previous week’s topic; a system that can only talk to itself is indeed a lonely system. When Google released its Maps API in 2005, any website could suddenly present beautiful and functional maps, mashed up with any other stored data.
Today, Social Media sites offer a number of API's to allow sharing and posting, and new services emerge every day that are mash-ups of existing tools, using APIs to weave them together. API's are the fabric of the web.
