Registration for this class will close 24 hours prior to class start in order to allow all students ample opportunity to have the technology enabled.

From Twitter to Facebook to smartphones and cash machines, Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) power our digital lives. In this talk, you'll learn the basics of APIs: what they are, how they work, and why they matter.

We'll look at the APIs that power several popular services and discuss the ways that businesses have used these APIs to their advantage. Even if you’ve never heard the term “API” before, you will walk away with a better understanding of the secret language spoken by the devices and applications that we interact with every day.

Takeaways

  • General understanding of APIs
  • Understanding the workings of APIs
  • Understand why you should care about APIs

Preparation

  • You will need access to a laptop or computer with a working webcam and microphone as well as a strong internet connection

  • Pre-work and course set up information will be emailed to all students signed up around 24 hours before (and again an hour before) your course begins
