Google+ API Announced and Made Public

Thursday, September 15th, 2011 | Business | No Comments

Got an email from the Google+ team a few hours ago, saying:

Greetings developers,

Thank you for showing your interest in the Google+ platform on our developer interest form. We promised to let you know when we had more details to share. Well, that time has come…

Today, we’re launching the first of the Google+ APIs. This initial API release is focused on public data only — it lets you read information that people have shared publicly on Google+. Read our blog post for more details.

Also, we’re happy to introduce a new Google+ developers site. This will be the place to go for our policies, terms, discussions with other developers, access to documentation, tools that make development on the Google+ platform easier and more fun, and of course, the place where announcements concerning new releases will be made.

We’re looking forward to seeing what you build with the API. Today is just the beginning, and your work will affect what comes next, so go ahead and get started.

Happy coding!

– The Google+ platform team

I guess this means it’s open season for developing for Google+.

You can find the Google+ API here.

The two are now married.  Err… maybe they’re friends?  At least … they are connected.

The new version of W3 Total Cache added API support for MediaTemple’s ProCDN offering (it’s EdgeCast but rebranded as MT).

To get the required Account #, and Token you need to log into your EdgeCast (ProCDN) account.
