The team at Black River (a web development firm based in Toronto, Canada), are working on an article series about the API in OpenX Source v2.8. As they say in the first article:
Especially when it comes to OpenX API – there is almost nothing out there but a few blog posts and outdated code samples. We would really like to share our experiences (both positive and negative) with OpenX API as we strongly believe that the OpenX platform should remain easy accessible and open to the public.
I strongly agree with this and that’s why I wanted to draw some extra attention to these articles.
Here is a run down of the articles in the series:
- The first article is an introduction to the OpenX Source API, with some background information on why it was developed and how to connect with the API.
- In the second article, the examples are mostly about using the OpenX Source API to work with advertisers (creating, modifying, retrieving statistics).
- The third article explains how the eCPM can be calculated for campaigns with different pricing models (like CPM, CPC and CPA), as an introduction for a later article about managing campaigns via the OpenX Source API.
