APISpark public beta started! February 25, 2013Posted by Jerome Louvel in APISpark, Restlet General.
After 2 years of R&D and following our announce of APISpark à GigaOM Mobilize last September, our team has been working intensly to complete and stabilize our public beta version.
Today, we are very excited to launch it, starting with the initial list of persons who signed up to get an access to the beta. If you haven’t done so yet, please make sure to sign up here, first come first serve!
Starting this month, we will be progressively giving access to more and more beta testers, with new releases once a month. As illustrated in the visual roadmap below (click on it for details), we plan to reach 1.0 in May 2013. Until then, we want to get as much testers and feed-back as possible and make 1.0 the highest quality product possible. Please also make sure to share with us ideas for enhancements and new features.
If you already have access to the public beta or if you want to see how creating, hosting, managing and using web APIs looks like with APISpark, we recommend our first article in our tutorial series.
