What is Coming In HTTP/3 QUIC?

HTTP/3 is a robust protocol, offering many gains with few adoption blockers. The promise of this protocol, however, is just that – a promise. While the protocol is, in theory, an attractive proposition, it still has quite a lot of iteration to go through, which has left many programmers with a simple question – what is the current state of HTTP/3 and QUIC, and what is explicitly the protocol offering compared to HTTP/2 and HTTP/1?

8+ Biometrics APIs At Your Fingertips

Looking for a web API to handle fingerprint identification? Let us identify the best ones for you…

Until recent years, fingerprints were something that most of us didn’t think about that often. Now, however, they’re something that most smartphone owners use to unlock their devices, complete online banking transactions, and so on. Read more

Rust Vs. Haskell: Which Language is Best for API Design?

When it comes to designing, building, and maintaining an API, it’s not immediately obvious which development tools and programming languages you should use. Seeing as how APIs are essentially the nervous system of mobile apps, it makes sense that there would be copious amounts of resources for programmers and developers. Read more

Using Hypermedia To Design Event-Driven UIs

Some of the most powerful tech is now built fully on an API backbone. Web APIs are great because they can deliver data and functionality over HTTP — or other protocols — meaning agnostic client platforms, easier evolvability, and more efficient designs. Read more
