One of our themes for this year’s event will be open data and open APIs and the possibilities they provide for developers to build great things! That’s why we’re excited that the Guardian are coming along to present a session on the use of their APIs. Michael’s talk will start with the following question: apart from the data blog with tons of free data tables, the World Government Data store telling us where to find open government data, the COINS database, and full fat RSS feeds what have the Guardian ever done for us?
Well yes obviously the content api… the content api goes without saying.
