The following is a guest post from Breezometer. Don’t forget to consume the Breezometer Air Quality API
Recently announced as “the most promising startup company in 2014
” by Global Entrepreneurship Week, BreezoMeter’s unique API has just landed on Mashape
. BreezoMeter was invented to make air quality data as simple, intuitive and actionable as weather. The company’s core technology is in mapping air quality – historical, real time and projected – at street-level resolution
. This is unique and valuable information that has many interesting use cases for many types of businesses and people.
Every March, college basketball fans find themselves deep in the throes of March Madness, even President Obama gets in on the fun
. Here at Mashape, we were disappointed to find that developers were not invited to the party. The NCAA has no official APIs available. In fact, we couldn’t find any free public API out there! Something had to be done, so we made our own
just in time for the Sweet Sixteen.
Unfortunately, the NCAA and other sports leagues have yet to embrace open data and the innovations it can spur. Imagine a bracket predicting engine, real-time matchup-based…

There is nothing more exciting than seeing hackers use their creativity in a small amount of time to create an amazing piece of software using APIs from Mashape. This is why we often participate and sponsor hackathons.
Most of the time we sponsor a category prize; where to win, you must use one of the 10,000+ APIs in our marketplace. We strive to find cool prizes you’ll enjoy, such as Arduino or Raspberry Pi starting kits, RC Quadcopters, Android tablets, and more. Since teams usually consist of four members, we always have a prize for each…

Now, there is an easy way for you to request for us to speak at your conference, mentor your hackathon or sponsor your event.…
Every other weekend, there is a hackathon to attend. Not all hackathons are the same though. Attendees, food, sponsors, ideas, and location all vary constantly and bring a unique vibe. Engineering your idea from 0 till the time you demo to everyone else on stage is a unique feeling. If you’ve never been to a hackathon, you should go.
In my life, I have attended tons of hackathons around the globe. I used to go to one a week in my earlier days; sometimes, I split myself between two hackathons too! I have always been impressed by the passion…

At Mashape, we love hackathons! A month ago, we were at Canada’s University of Toronto UofTHacks
; which featured a full weekend of coding and more than 500 students from all across Canada. I was there to represent Mashape, give out amazing t-shirts, spread the API love with our stickers, award a prize, and most importantly, act as a mentor and help students with their development issues.
Mashape had a prize for the best application using an API from our marketplace. With so many APIs to choose from, it was easy for students to select a…
