A new API Discoverability search engine and a robots.txt type-format have been launched today at Gluecon. As API deployment continues to grow exponentially, API providers face increasing challeneges in getting their public APIs noticed, while API developer-consumers are facing more difficulties in discovering potential APIs that can add value to their supply chain.

Thanks a lot Fabrice! It's been an exciting journey so far, seeing our team grow with complementary talents, our products mature and market exploding. Looking forward for the next steps!
 
I've been following what +Jerome Louvel has been doing with Restlet since the beginning - when we were talking about the first versions of the framework, and I'm really happy to see that he succeeds to build a good business with a great team. I'm sure this is the kind of tech company everybody would love to work in - like here @ SonarSource.

I really wish them to keep on growing successfully!

+Guillaume Laforge , I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun there. :-)
