Somerville, MA — February 19, 2015 — API Evangelists, Ole Lensmar, CTO at SmartBear Software, and Lorinda Brandon, Director of API Partner Development at SmartBear, launched a new monthly podcast series, “APIsUncensored,” with the inaugural episode, “Catching Up With John Musser,” featuring the CEO and Founder of APIScience and Founder of ProgrammableWeb. Ole and Lorinda cover a lot of API ground in the initial episode, including an in-depth discussion with John Musser about his current plans as well as the trends and importance of API monitoring and how it differs from Web monitoring.

John Musser served as an architecture, product manager and operations consultant at Server Architects, authored the O'Reilly Web 2.0 Report and was an instructor in software project management at Columbia University.

“We are continuously seeing an increased usage of APIs as the core fabric of Web, mobile and IoT solutions, and this podcast gives us a fascinating opportunity to explore and discuss all the ongoing trends and technologies related to this API revolution together with our prestigious guests and listeners,” said Ole Lensmar.
 
The “APIsUncensored” podcast series is product agnostic and non-promotional in nature. The need for higher interconnectivity between applications is at an all-time high and continues to grow at a rapid pace along with the use of APIs.
