theBookSeller.com have just released an article about the work we’ve been doing:
Pearson has embraced an open-source approach to digital content, making its proprietary content available to third-party digital developers.
The publisher officially globally launched its Plug and Play platform today [1st September], which gives in-house and external developers the chance to use Pearson-owned content to create digital applications. Pearson announced the project in May with news of an open application programming interface (API) for its DK Eyewitness Guide to London. Plug and Play offers data from it, as well as from Pearson’s Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English and FT Press, as well as developer support and pricing details.
