From API Codex

Building and using API's can be hard. Despite progress in tools, and increased numbers of launched APIs, best practice is still evolving very quickly. This makes it hard to track down how to design great APIs, or learn how to use them without getting burned. Worse, published advice gets out of date quickly, and it’s hard to figure out right from wrong.

With API Codex we’re aiming to make it easier by creating a great resource that helps you find the best content and materials on "everything API". We’re starting with curated links and commentary, but we’ll add forums, community elements and more content over time.

We'd love to hear what you have to say and how we can keep making this better - contact us here and Happy API-ing!
