What would you do if you had access to identity graph data? How about pre-existing profile information, or information about a user’s contacts? DandyID’s API gives developers access to all that data and the possibilities for what you can do with it are endless. From building widgets and plugins that display social identity data to integrating DandyID services with existing social networks to mashing all that data up with services from another API, there is simply a ton that you can do with DandyID’s developer tools.
How about a plugin for an open source forum system like phpBB that lets users display their social identity and pull in their DandyID profile? Or what about a mashup with the Gnip API to create a lifestream aggregator?
Those are just two ideas, but we’re sure there are many more, which is why we’re happy to announce the DandyID API Contest
! We want to inspire and encourage innovative uses of our API, so we’re inviting talented developers to take a crack at creating something awesome and win great prizes in the process.
What developer wouldn’t want to code on the 27″ Dell Flat Screen monitor we’re giving away for first prize? Three other developers will win prizes, as well — an Amazon Kindle 2 for second place, a Flip video camera for third, and a big bucket of LEGOs for fourth place. 25 randomly selected entries will also receive DandyID t-shirts!
We can’t wait to see what types of things developers create using our API, so head on over the contest page, register for an API key, and start building. We’ll announce the great team of judges we’ve assembled to pick the winners over the next couple of weeks on this blog.
Tweet this contest for a chance to win a DandyID t-shirt and stickers. You must follow @DandyID to receive a DM with winner details.
