Google just launched Code Lab. This is a place where developers can find 60 APIs to access early-stage Google products and explore new ideas among developers. Third parties can build APIs at Google lab and it also says what projects Google has made a long term commitment and what they have not. Google also announced a list of several Google Code Lab “graduates,” featuring best-known APIs and tools. The list includes App Engine, Google Web Toolkit, AJAX Search API, Maps API, Earth API, Calendar Data API, and YouTube APIs. The complete list can be avaialable here.
The lab can be distinguished in different ways. 1> Breaker: Instead of the typical Google Code logo, Labs products have one with a beaker as the “L”. 2> Green is the new blue: Instead of the blue page elements that you see on most Google Code pages, Labs products use green. The Products In Labs are those APIs still under the lab testing. If an API has to graduate from the Lab, it has to go through a strict set of standards.Filed under Collaboration Tool, Google, Google, Internet, Open Source Platform | Tags: Ajax Search, API, App Engine, Calendar Data, Google Lab, YouTube | Comment Below
