Mashery, the leading provider of API (Application Programming Interface) management and strategic services, revealed key insights from the Mashery API Developer Pulse, a study that polled more than 550 mobile and Web application developers at the South by Southwest Interactive (SXSWi) event in March 2010. The Mashery Developer Pulse asked industry leading developers to sound off about the APIs they choose to build with and why as well as asking general questions about the development environment today. Developers put Google, Twitter and Amazon at the top of the list for the “best APIs” available for application development, and also revealed a long tail of dozens of APIs that developers enjoy working with on a regular basis.
