If you think there is a link I should have listed here feel free to tweet it at me, or submit as a Github issue. Even though I do this full time, I'm still a one person show, and I miss quite a bit, and depend on my network to help me know what is going on.

API Design Organizations

These are the organizations I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space. They could be companies, institutions, government agencies, or any other type of organizational entity. My goal is to aggregate so I can stay in tune with what they are up to and how it impacts the API space.

AWS Internet of Things

AWS IoT is a managed cloud platform that lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices. AWS IoT can support billions of devices and trillions of messages, and can process and route those messages to AWS endpoints and to other devices reliably and securely. With AWS IoT, your applications can keep track of and communicate with all your devices, all the time, even when they aren’t connected. AWS IoT makes it easy to use AWS services like AWS Lambda, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon S3, Amazon Machine Learning, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon CloudWatch, AWS CloudTrail, and Amazon Elasticsearch Service with built-in Kibana integration, to build IoT applications that gather, process, analyze and act on data generated by connected devices, without having to manage any infrastructure.

Ubi

Allows any device with a speaker, microphone and Internet connection to become a voice interactive product. An end-to-end service for implementing voice interaction on any hardware. Our mission is to make interaction with technology and the world around us seamless, secure and natural through voice by enabling everyday objects to come alive.

Local Motors

Local Motors is an American motor vehicle manufacturing company focused on low-volume manufacturing of open-source motor vehicle designs using multiple microfactories. 

Buddy Platform

Buddy offers a range of add-ons to give you even more options for dealing with your device data. From real-time dashboards, extra storage, additional data regions, additional traffic capacity, and much more, Buddy provides the flexibility you need to harness the power of IoT data

Google Beacons

Give your users better location and proximity experiences by providing a strong context signal for their devices in the form of Bluetooth low energy (BLE) beacons with Eddystone, the open beacon format from Google. The Google beacon platform enables you to manage your beacons remotely, integrate with Google services and help users' devices to discover content and functionality across Android, native apps and the web.

Amazon Dash

Amazon Dash Replenishment Service (DRS) enables connected devices to order physical goods from Amazon when supplies are running low—like a Brita Water Pitcher that orders more filters. By using Amazon Dash Replenishment, device makers are able to leverage Amazon's authentication and payment systems, customer service, and fulfillment network—giving their customers access to Amazon's low prices, great selection, and reliable delivery.

LeapMotion

Take your #FirstLeap into 3D motion control, available for $79.99. Explore apps in gaming, music, design and more, at http://t.co/pFmLZTY6w5

Splunk Dev

Splunk is the leading provider of operational intelligence software used to monitor, report and analyze real-time machine data as well as terabytes of historical data–located on-premise or in the cloud. More than half of the Fortune 100 and more than 5,200 enterprises, service providers and government organizations in 90 countries use Splunk to improve service levels, reduce IT operations costs, mitigate security risks, and drive new levels of operational visibility.

Bugswarm

Acquire data from and control embedded devices using JavaScript or plain old HTTP. Combine multiple resources together to create a swarm. Once a member of a swarm, a resource can communicate and share data with other resources in that swarm. Control the level of access a resource has to a swarm. Grant a resource permission to produce data, consume data, or do both. Invite another user's resources into your swarms and accept invitations to place your resources in somebody else's swarms. Share your data easily and securely.

ThingSpeak

The Buddy Platform is the first BaaS that Powers, Optimizes and Measures your Apps. Buddy enables developers to build engaging, cloud-connected apps without having to write, test, manage or scale server-side code or infrastructure. Build against Buddy’s collections of APIs that offer complete end-to-end scenarios like geo-location, photo albums, chat/messaging, image filters, user accounts, friends and more. Every interaction that a user has with an app built on Buddy generates incredibly high fidelity analytics, all captured in real-time by the Platform with no additional client or server-side code required. Track usage of each feature in your app by demographics, location and intent - now you can go “back in time” and adjust the metrics you’re tracking without needing to update and resubmit your app. Leverage the Buddy Platform, and satisfy all your cloud infrastructure needs in one place!

Ninja Blocks

The Ninja Blocks Platform makes connecting so called “things” to the internet and each other easy through open source hardware, software and an API service. Ninja Blocks are tiny open source computers that can sense and react to their environment. They support RF out of the box and are designed to be extended to support everything. The Ninja Blocks API makes it simple to create apps (webapps, widgets, phone apps) that interact with a users devices. The block software “wraps” proprietary devices and offers their features through a RESTful API. Ninja Blocks address the critical element of interoperability - addressing (how do you identify a device), authentication (are you allowed to talk to a device) and protocol (how do you control a device). The Ninja Blocks mission is to enable real interoperability in the fledgling world of the Internet of Things.

ecobee

ecobee, Inc. delivers energy conservation solutions. The company offers ecobee Smart Thermostat, a digital programmable thermostat that helps in customizing temperature settings. The thermostat connects the clients to their WiFi, and gives them remote access to the thermostat settings from any computer and helps in energy conservation.
