Streamdata is a software vendor making real-time data accessible to all by operating a proxy turning request / response APIs into feeds of real-time events.
This is my online domain where I work to understand the world of the Application Programming Interfaces, also known as APIs. This new way of sharing data using the web is touching almost every aspect of our increasingly digital lives, providing access to the bits and bytes that make our personal and professional worlds go round.
This is my research specifically into how API platforms are showcasing (or not) the applications that are being developed on their platforms. I find showcasing to be not just valuable, but tells a lot about a platform and how it views its consumers. Just watching companies, as well as the absence of companies tells me a lot about what the motivations are behind operating an API platform.
API Evangelist is a network of data driven projects and APIs which I curate and manage as part of this ongoing research, hoping to provide easy access to the moving parts of my work. Everything you see here runs on Github, making everything forkable, and reusable for both humans and machines.
