Some web apis for the webs and the apps

Late last week we released to the webs our project's first set of web apis.

This first set of APIs are simple, and meant to provide the app developer with a bit more device side contextual information so they might use it to provide a better experience for their user.

Here's some code you can embed to play around with our CPU / Power / Connection Indicator widget:



<div id="cpci_div"></div>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="/sites/whatif/webapis/intelwebapis.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="/sites/whatif/webapis/widget/cpc/IntelCPCIWidget.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
(function() {
//modified update interval - updates every 1 second instead of default 5
var theIntelCpciInst = new IntelCPCIWidget('cpci_div',{'updateInt':1});
})();
</script>




Our next APIs will be building blocks that help with more compute intensive problems - such as image and video processing.


If you're already coding in C/C++ you should check out our Media SDK forum and my coworker Eric Sardella's blog.


If you're strictly a web app developer - stay tuned baby! :).


If you want to tell us what compute intensive APIs would help your web app development - we've got a forum for that.
