The ways in which the Internet supports our everyday lives have become richer, more engaging, and more mobile. This innovation is driven by the visionaries, designers, developers, and managers of the web experiences that users consume every day. By exploring new ways to solve challenges and improve products and services that enrich our lives, developers and business owners have stretched the Internet to support use cases for which it was never designed. In order to succeed, modern web experiences must seem simple to end-users, even though most ultimately require complex design and technology to deliver.
The UK’s number one property website, Rightmove.co.uk, provides home hunters with both website and mobile access to over one million available properties daily. Their website and mobile platforms make searching for and researching properties to buy or rent, easy.

Rightmove customers, including UK and overseas-based estate and letting Agents as well as new home developers are uploading 2 million images every day.

Today, 75% of Twitter traffic and 65% of Salesforce.com traffic comes through APIs. But APIs are not just for the social Web. According to ProgrammableWeb.com, the number of open APIs being offered publicly over the Internet now exceeds 2000—up from just 32 in 2005. Opening APIs up to outside developers enables many technology start-ups to become platforms, by fostering developer communities tied to their core data or application resources. This translates into new reach (think Twitter’s rapid growth), revenue (think Salesforce.com’s AppExchange) or end user retention (think Facebook).
OAuth puts the user in control of delegating access to an API. This
allows one service to integrate with another service on behalf of that user. The same social Web providers who popularized the pattern of exposing an API to enable third-party developers to enrich their platforms were the first ones to apply such delegated authorization mechanisms. OAuth was defined in 2006, to standardize mechanisms of this kind.

Once upon a time, several generations ago (in technology years), IT departments were internal departments, focused on maintaining infrastructure and services within the company. Some companies may have had external-facing services, particularly web services, but this was still generally a narrow and restricted area. IT wasn’t a revenue-generating or strategic department; it was a supporting environment viewed as a cost center.
One of the outcomes of an infrastructure-focused environment is that developers lost a sense of what their code was doing. Release cycles were long, and changes were slow. A developer would work on something and throw the code into testing or operations, and it would be released months later. Because of that long lead time, engineers lost the joy of being a developer—of creating something and seeing it work in real life.
One of the great, powerful changes with digital transformation and related cultural and technology changes like DevOps is that it reintroduce
