Web services and APIs (application programming interfaces) are hot topics among Web developers -- for two good reasons.
- Many developers now want to expose content and features on their site via Web services or APIs.
- It's getting easier to take advantage of these services. Drupal 8, for example, now has this capability in core. And some contributed modules are attempting to make it even better.
This is why Acquia and Palantir.net, the Chicago-based Web strategy, development, and design firm, have been working together on a Web services series.
