As a content provider on the internet, not only I publish on this technical blog, but also I'm a podcaster and publish audio podcasts on Mash This.
Trying to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, I'm a pescetarianist and exercise almost everyday. I’m an avid runner, soccer defender, and tennis player. I also have an interest in fashion.
We're publishing new episodes on Mash This podcast on a regular basis, and have had a very good progress in the past three months inviting good guests and having great discussions about online services, API's, and mash ups. Today we have yet another great episode to offer and it's episode 7 featuring Neil Mansilla where we talk about building a better API.
Dustin was busy with his new job and couldn't make it to this episode, so we have John Sheehan as a special co-host for this episode to talk to Neil Mansilla. Neil is the Director of Developer Products at Mashery, and just in case you don't know about Mashery, it is a very famous service that provides a wide range of professional services to other online services and API's.
This episode covers a wide range of topics just like the past few episodes. We talk a lot about building good API's and what makes a good online API. We also talk about other stuff like monetizing API's as well as the past and future of online services and API's. Neil shares with us his personal expertise and experiences along with some valuable information about the big clients they have on Mashery as some good case studies related to our discussion.
You can download episode 7 and check out the links that we cited during our conversation.
