Why do companies like Facebook, MySpace, Flickr, Google, Yahoo and Microsoft provide access to millions of dollars worth of their API programming and data for free?

Quite simply . . . search engines and websites live and die by brand recognition, market share, revenue, traffic and visitors. API’s provide a way for innovative programmers to use their systems to increase visitors and revenue. API’s are a win win for everyone.


Why should a website owner consider using API’s?

Corporations providing API’s have developed base code that would be totally out of reach for the average website owner to cost effectively develop from scratch. In many cases corporate resources and data are accessible by API’s that give your site sophisticated features for a nominal cost.


Can any website use API’s?

Each API (Application Program Interface) has its own requirements and Terms of Service. Some API’s are free and some incur costs. Throughout our site, we have provided links to the documentation and Terms of Service of many popular API’s. If you can’t find the information you need on our site, a simple search on the web for the particular API you are interested in will give you the information you need to make intelligent use of a corporation’s API.


Why use APICoders.com?

APICoders.com is an India outsourcing company that specializes in API programming. Rather than paying programmers for their learning curve to become experts . . . we are API programming experts.


We have many websites that you can visit to see live examples of our API programming. Plus we have references of customers that you can contact. Many of our customers have been with us for years.


Does APICoders develop applications that include other programming skills besides API’s?

Yes. Almost every website that we have developed using API’s requires expert knowledge of PHP, .NET, Javascript, Ruby on Rails or ASP. Usually our API programming is integrated with a custom shopping cart, blog, web applications or social network programming. We even add API features to legacy or existing software.


What types of clients do you do develop applications for?

API Coders works with a broad range of clients:

  • Web designers needing help with high level programming projects. 
  • Entrepreneurs with software and website projects
  • Corporations outsourcing intranet, extranet and web development
  • Marketers requiring widgets and applications for social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace.
What clients are  NOT a good match?

Those who want API Coders to clone a complete YouTube, MySpace or Facebook site with all of its features for $200. India outsourcing can save you money but no company can clone complex social networking sites that take a programming team months to develop for a few hundred dollars. 


If an outsourding firm makes this type of commitment . . .  run  for the hills.  They will just be taking your deposit and never delivering. 


We rescue and complete many programming projects that other outsourcing firms with less experience and expertise could not finish.   A great social networking site requires a design combining high level planning, programming in many disciplines and knowledge of server load balancing.  Plus search engine optimization and marketing.  


Visit www.IndiaShines.com and www.AmoreTravelGuides.com to see examples of our social networking code in action.  If you have a realistic budget for a project of this magnitude, please contact us for a price quote.


Isn’t there a language barrier with India?

India is popular for outsourcing because English is a native language and the investment in using our top level programmers with years of experience is a fraction of the cost of similar skills in the United States. We fluently write and speak English.


How will we communicate throughout our project?

Choose your favorite way to discuss your project. Phone, MSN Messenger, ICQ, Yahoo Messenger, Google Talk, email or our project management system are some great options.


In fact, feel free to contact us today to discuss your programming project.
