Product Announcement: GameDay API infrastructure improvements

Image
Over the past six months, GameDay has undertaken an extensive project to overhaul and rebuild its API infrastructure. Firstly, you may be asking; what is an API and why are they important? API is the acronym for Application Programming Interface, which is a software intermediary that allows two applications to talk to each other. Each time you use an app like Facebook, send an instant message, or check the weather on your phone, you’re probably using an API where data is flowing from one application to another in order for that app or software system to work. GameDay is no different, we rely heavily on APIs to make our product work in the way its designed and talk to other platforms or applications via a possible 3rd party integration. Now you know what an API is and how it is used within GameDay, you can see why this is such an important project for GameDay to undertake. This project has resulted in a complete rewrite of all our APIs used both internally and externally to be replaced
