  3. 3. Yup, we’re massive.<br /> 4 Million <br />hits per month<br />10,000 + charities<br />15 Million<br />JustGiving <br />account holders<br />Very close to <br />£1 billion<br />Raised via JG<br />
  4. 4. So, who am I?<br />I’m David, a developer from JustGiving. I work on the APIs with a few of the developers here.<br />You can blame me if they suck<br />Or be nice when they don’t ;)<br />

  25. 25. Simple Donation Integration<br />The obvious question that people ask is “Who cares! Can I donate using the API!”<br /><ul><li>Simple Donation Integration is a redirect based integration technique
  26. 26. Allows you to send users to JustGiving to make a donation
  27. 27. Users are returned to your site afterwards with some query string magic
  28. 28. You then use the API to verify the donation
  29. 29. Really really simple.</li></li></ul><li>You can obviously do other stuff<br />We’ve got API access to quite a lot of our data now, and we’re aiming for more coverage over time<br /><ul><li>Account data, creation and management

  58. 58. Pure REST, OAuth, more consistent Verb usage, better key management
  59. 59. Data APIs in testing as we speak targeting CRM integrations and reporting
