We’re looking for experienced webmasters to help us Beta Test the new Lemonfree.com API. We think we’ve managed to iron out most of the glitches but we’ll need help in finding the ones we’ve missed.
This is new for us and we’re not quite sure what to expect. We’ve built a quick and dirty API Demo site that leverages our API to demonstrate a little of what you can do with it and learned a little of what we need to successfully launch.
There’s also a challenge, unofficially, put forth by Mashery – to be fair, the Mashery rep didn’t actually throw down the gauntlet. They don’t think we’ll be able to successfully launch and run our API without someone in the middle caching and load balancing the traffic for us. I stubbornly think the team here at lemonfree.com is capable of doing this for considerably less than the cost of outsourcing, granted without the frills.
Can you generate enough traffic to cause our server pain? Will you humble us and our infrastructure? This is our challenge to you.
What can you do with the Lemonfree.com API? You can query it for vehicles for sale in the USA and Canada. You can query our 1.7 million vehicle database by any combination of make, model, year, price, milage and zip code.
If you’re interested in participating in the beta test please email me with some information about your website, how much traffic you think you’ll generate, and what sort of monster mash-up you’ll be creating.
