Amazon web services

17th July 2002

Amazon have launched a brand new web service interface to their huge database of products. I’ve been playing around with it, and I’ve knocked together a simple search engine example in PHP, with the code available for anyone who wants it. I did a similar thing a few months ago when Google released their Web API so we’ve set up a new site at Incutio to host these and other open source projects— The site is only a few hours old and we’d love some feedback—contact us directly or add a comment to this entry.
