Wowzer, a provider of video screening/nterviewing, announced its Wowzer API. The Wowzer API allows developers to integrate the Wowzer features into their existing hiring process.

It all comes down to simply getting the job done. The bigger the job or team, the trickier the co-ordinating can become, and anyone who’s ever had to manage a team and attain goals or rushed deadlines will know the importance of dotting every “i” and crossing every “t”. Thanks to technology and clever development, we have access to applications that help to streamline this very process. Do.com is one of those; a project management and collaboration application designed to help teams accomplish a number of tasks. Do.com’s API also makes this functionality available to developers who may want to integrate this with other applications or build new ones.

Of the many APIs we published this week, eleven were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those eleven, which included the OneID API. OneID aims to end the problem that many people have with too many usernames and passwords. It does so by combing a users security keys into one big, encrypted “blob.” Apparently this information is more secure than normal user authentication practices and is callable via the OneID API. Once a users information is in the blob, OneID authenticates a user when they are trying to log into a site by confirming three different digital signatures on different devices. To learn more about OneID functionality, visit the OneID site as well as the OneID API blog post.
