While studying the API sector for the last five years some companies, tools, formats, and people stand out along the way. Shortly after I started tracking on the world of APIs in 2010, I began assembling what I'd consider to be some of the most significant milestones in the short history of web APIs. Five years later, I work to update this history regularly, forcing me to step back to see what is making the biggest impact when it comes to APIs.
I fund my research through consulting, selling my guides, and the generous support of my sponsors. I appreciate your support in helping me continue with my work, and hope you find it relevant in your API journey.
