Curated Links News

These are the news items that I have curated during the monitoring of the API space that have some relevance to the Links conversation and I wanted to include in my research. I am using all of these links to better understand how the space is defining not just their APIs, but their schema, and other moving parts of their API operations.

Featured Links Companies and Organizations

These are the organizations I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space.

Accelerated Mobile Pages URL

AMP is a way to build web pages for static content that render fast. AMP in action consists of three different parts: AMP HTML is HTML with some restrictions for reliable performance and some extensions for building rich content beyond basic HTML. The AMP JS library ensures the fast rendering of AMP HTML pages. The Google AMP Cache can be used to serve cached AMP HTML pages.
