This post is brought to you in part by Geeklist
, a vibrant platform for geeks to discover, connect and share the great work they have done. Check out the upcoming ‘Hack for Good’
global mobile hackathon this coming June 28th – 30th.
We love hackathons! We love seeing what developers can do with APIs. Just look at this
, and this
! However with hackathons running almost every day, it’s easy to run out of app ideas. What if your app was already created in some hackathon that you…
This past weekend we were at Parisoma for APIHackDay SF 2013
. API HackDay SF brings developers together for an all-day coding fest focused on building apps and mashups with APIs.
At the end of the 8-hour hackathon, about 20 teams
presented their apps to evangelists from Mashery
, and Apiphany
. There were prize categories from each company, as well as overall top three prizes.
Congratulations to the winners!
The overall top three winners were Smart CRM
, and ranker.io
. You can also check…

There has been a lot of buzz around Face Recognition since Google Glass
was announced. We believe that face recognition will open up a ton of possibilities in how we interact not just with each other, but with objects as well – whether it’s with Glass or not.
To help you in your journey of exploring face recognition, we have below a long list of face detection and recognition APIs that you can use for your applications. Enjoy!
As proud contributors to the open source community, nothing makes us happier than getting feedback and support from developers who like to make things better.
Shortly after we released Unirest.io
, we received a ton of feedback from developers who would like to get a Windows 8 and .NET port. Before we can even get to it, we received contributions from Michael Azarkevich
and Michael Sync
who ported Unirest to the two platforms. To the two Michaels, a HUGE THANK YOU! You rock m/
We have officially rolled them in with the rest of the Unirest libraries here
Mashape is proud to announce that our growth hacker, Montana Flynn, has been selected by British Airways and its partners to participate in UnGrounded Thinking
, the company’s inaugural Innovation Lab in the Sky.
The group will work on global challenges at 30,000 feet, aboard a private British Airways flight from San Francisco to London on June 12, 2013. Montana will join more than 100 industry leaders and change agents, to collaboratively address the global STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) skills gap with the goal of accelerating global innovation.
Participants were nominated by global technology leaders in both Silicon Valley…
We’re always excited with interesting apps that make use of Mashape APIs. One in particular is the recent winner of the Mashape Skybiometry prize category in APIDays Mediterranea
. Their app is called LoveHere

The team composed of Javier Abadia, Jaime Nieves Martinez, and Francesc Puigvert Pell built LoveHere in 7 hours for the APIDays Mediterranea
(Though we weren’t physically there, we had Apicultur
to thank for helping represent Mashape in the hackathon). It is a platform for dating that allows to connect users with people nearby without compromising personal…
We would like to congratulate the two teams that won the Mashape categories
at AngelhackNYC! Awesome job guys! We look forward to opening up opportunities for you by promoting your hacks with the Mashape community, and connecting you with developers/entrepreneurs/businesses that might take interest 🙂
Also, congratulations to the AngelhackNYC grand prize winner Kronicle! As well as the 70+ teams
that participated in AngelhackNYC. We’d reach out to everyone soon!
And finally, thanks to the organizers of Angelhack
for arranging a well-attended hackathon in New York.
Without further ado, our winners!

After the successful launch of Unirest
, an open source lightweight http client library, we received a lot of requests for a C# .NET port on Windows Desktop and Windows 8. Even before we got to work, we’ve received contributions from the open source community who ported Unirest to .NET.
This tutorial will show you how to use the Windows 8 (RT) port of Unirest
in your application (We will follow this up with the Windows Desktop port
in a later post, but it will follow pretty much the same steps). Let’s get started!
NOTE: We will be updating this…
