Click for San Francisco, California Forecast

San Francisco, USA

 

Yahoo API

I got to try out the newly released Yahoo API. Yahoo's move to open up its services to developers is a good news. But specifically I want to applaud them for designing a very developer friendly interface. Registering an application ID a breeze (and it doesn't seems to be mandatory for a quick experiment). They have the sensibility to use REST services over SOAP. It takes me 2 minutes using the web browser and text editor to experiment with their services and come out with a good understanding of what it can do. All these can be done without specialized tools required by SOAP. Google should have go this way in the first place.
