Matthew Scott, September 21st, 2013

TaDawebOf the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll illuminate those ten by throwing them into the spotlight. The eight included the TaDaweb API. Unlike what seems to be the trend with big data, TaDabweb focuses on what they like to term “small data.” By searching the public web and taking small amounts of existing data TaDaweb can create more meaningful data sets by combining what they find. Hence the term “Small data.” The TaDaweb API allows developers to leverage this functionality through third party applications. To learn more about the TaDaweb API visit the TaDaweb site as well as the TaDaweb API blog post.
