We’re happy to announce a limited-time contest where everybody is a winner. The rules are simple: you have to send at least one push notification to a device of your choice with Apigee Push before June 30 11:59pm Pacific time. You can integrate an existing app, a new app, an empty app, a sample app, etc. — anything’s good! — and your app can be either a native iOS app, a native Android app or an HTML5/PhoneGap app. You could win 10M pushes a month for free for the next 12 months (that's on top of the free quota of 10M/month): that’s almost a quarter billion free pushes for your apps this year — and savings of over $18,000/month compared to other providers. A short "how to" video will get you started quickly
Last week we were delighted to host several training sessions and workshops in the San Francisco Bay Area and totally thrilled to see such an enthusiastic turnout of thinkers and makers! Over 100 developers attended each session. Huge thanks to everyone who attended and made it such an exciting and engaging experience. We had a blast!

The app economy is changing the basis of competition for every enterprise. One of our goals for the Apigee Institute is to equip business leaders with cross-industry empirical data. Our first survey of executive opinion—two hundred IT and Marketing leaders in companies with $500M or more in annual revenue, across more than three dozen industries - returns some fascinating results. 99% believe that software will touch nearly all social interactions or commercial transactions, with the potential to generate data of unprecedented scope in the next 5 years. In this post we share some context that helped us better understand what’s happening in the market.
Previously, we discussed HATEOAS (the hypermedia constraint) within the context of REST. This laid the groundwork for our discussion today, which is how to apply HATEOAS to an API strategy. Now, let’s look at some questions people have in regard to HATEOAS when setting up their API.
Our June 2013 update for the Apigee API Platform delivers a number of new features including the ability to easily build a REST endpoint for a SOAP back-end service. The wizard based approach makes it easy to model your SOAP API as REST, with meaningful resource names and verbs generated from the SOAP operations.
Check out this short video for a summary.
We recently discussed the six constraints of REST but today we'll deepen our discussion of hypermedia as the engine of application state or HATEOAS (hay-dee-ous), in an attempt to understand what HATEOAS really means.
Developers are the kingpins of the app economy. Reaching them and driving developer adoption is critical to the success of your API strategy. If you are starting a developer program, this new ebook is for you. It discusses frameworks for designing and measuring a developer program, describes lessons learned from working with dozens of developer advocates and programs across industries, and more.
