Excerpt: Sound familiar? If you love Instagram, you’ll love that it’s now borrowing a popular feature from Facebook – photo tagging. Late last week, Instagram announced that users can now tag friends in their photos.

These reviews are intended to provide you with information on products and services that we consider useful and of value to developers.

To make your API and platform useful you need documentation, tools, examples and forums. If you are a successful API company you start developing a community of people that work with your service. The community shares ideas and helps each other out. Years ago when we at DocuSign opened up our API we created a space for developers to get resources and share knowledge. We called it the DocuSign DevCenter – www. docusign. com/devcenter/. Initially it was just one page with links to download the SDK and to see our API endpoints.... read the full post.
