The most delightful learning experiences are natural and effortless. With that in mind, we at Apigee strive to minimize the time it takes to make your first successful API request. We make it as simple as possible to learn how to make successful API calls, but don’t prevent you from purposefully making failing requests, which can be useful while troubleshooting. Read on!
I'm excited to announce that Usergrid is now part of Apigee. Almost every mobile app needs back-end services to store and manage users, data and events. But powering mobile apps from the cloud is a hard problem, requiring a rich set of easy-to-use features for managing users, delivering applications objects and data, and analyzing usage and tracking key metrics. Usergrid delivers the mobile app back-end APIs that developers need to manage data and users, reducing the effort and cost of developing a mobile application and letting app developers focus on the app experience.
This week we released some updates to our Apigee API Console. Here is a short demo of:
- a new API provider page that lists all the API consoles
- a new API Resources page that lists all of the API operations
- UI changes to the Console itself (split screen, awesome bar, and more)

Three weeks ago, we launched the OAuth API as, "The easiest way to make authenticated calls to the Twitter and Salesforce REST APIs." We've always believed that APIs are better together, so today, we're rolling out support for Facebook, Flickr, and Foursquare. Not only is it now easy to get started with one API, supporting multiple services in your application is practically trivial.
We're delighted to make the new Apigee OAuth API available for public beta. The OAuth API makes it easier to use OAuth by giving you a single keychain for authenticating to multiple APIs.
We're excited to announce that we've partnered with BlueVia, the new developer platform from Telefonica, to offer developers an Apigee API Console! BlueVia's APIs gives developers access to Telefonica's network assets and data, including APIs for SMS, MSS, user contextual information, advertising and location.
Many APIs start out serving content. But if you eventually want to transact with your API and take credit card orders - you need to understand the implications of PCI DSS compliance.
PCI is a set of requirements that protects your customers and your business from the release of sensitive credit card information. You don't buy technology to that makes you PCI compliant. Instead, PCI is a process and checklist of standards that those accepting credit card data must adhere to (more on this here). But it's important that the...
