API Evangelist Partners

These are my partners who invest in API Evangelist each month, helping underwrite my research, and making sure I'm able to keep monitoring the API space as I do.


3scale makes it easy to open, secure, distribute, control and monetize APIs, that is built with performance, customer control and excellent time-to-value in mind.


Efficiently turn APIs into real-time experiences, using a proxy-as-a-service that turns any request-answer API into real-time event-driven data feeds without a line of server-side code.

Compute API News

These are the news items I've curated in my monitoring of the API space that have some relevance to compute, and how APIs are powered. Compute is an essential building block of doing APIs, and something that is present in any implementation.
