Help Pingdom change the world

PingdomIt would be easy for us to borrow a phrase from Steve Jobs and ask you: “Do you want to sell sugared water for the rest of your life? Or do you want to come with me and change the world?” And the thing is, we’d be very serious about it. Chances are you don’t sell sugared water, but the essence of the question is still valid: do you want to join Pingdom and change the world?

Because, you see, we believe this with passion, that we’re building some of the best online services anywhere, which are used by individuals and businesses in all four corners of the world.  Our quest is to make the web a faster and safer place for all, and we need the best people to join us to make that a reality.

Wrappers for Pingdom’s new REST API

Pingdom APIAs you may know, we recently launched a new Pingdom API. It’s a powerful, easy-to-use REST API that lets you do anything from accessing your Pingdom monitoring history (for example for constructing charts, etc.), check the current status of your websites, add new monitoring, edit contacts, set up notifications, etc.

Basically anything you can do from within Pingdom’s control panel, you can do via the API. We encourage you to check it out if you haven’t already (we suggest you start here).

The new API has been very well received, and it didn’t take long before third-party wrappers started to show up for various languages, created by enthusiastic users.
