Video interview on Google’s opening up AJAX APIs
April 24, 2008
A few days ago, Google announced having officially, and “quietly” opened up their AJAX APIs to access from within server side applications, Flash, etc. By opening – and documenting – this, they’ve offered official approval while at the same time clarifying limits. Dion Almaer posted the video below to the Google Code Blog, in which Mark Lucovsky of the API team discusses some of those limits and expectations, the differences between this and the SOAP API, and more. It’s not great television, but it’s an interesting watch.
