We’ve covered Apigee’s services before. They focus on giving developers the power to use Application Programming Interfaces, or APIs. That may sound too ‘techie’ but the bottom line is that Apigee gives you the ability to more easily integrate your program with the likes of Twitter, Facebook, and much moremore. Think of Apigee as the key that can open the doors to give you more ‘Bang!’ for your buck by making it easier to implement robust web services on your site or application.
Today marks some big announcements from the company, with the announcement of a new beta Premium service. The Premium beta gives you the ability to learn, test and debug APIs (making you a ninja-level API developer with much less pain!). You can also protect your data by limiting service rates and access. The Premium service joins Apigee’s exisisting Free platform and their top-of-the-line Enterprise service used by companies ranging from MTV Networks, TransUnion, Comcast and GameSpy.
Read on to become one of the Premium beta users, and to get the full scoop and see Apigee action!
Here’s a video showing off Apigee’s API console and what the service can do for you:
