What they are saying is "The NY Times has some data that you can freely access and use in your project."In addition to that, the term API can also refer to apps that write and process data on our behalf. Well cover this, and much more!Who Is this Class For?This class is made for the total beginner. If youre looking to learn about APIs youre in the right place. If youre a developer looking to query some API data, well be providing you with code examples to take home.For Non-ProgrammersMaybe you're new to APIs? Or you've had one of the IT guys in your office try to explain this to you before, but to no avail? I totally get it, and so I've designed this class with you in mind.What Ive found is that the best way to learn the concepts of programming is to actually write some code yourself. (Much like how we learn a foreign language - you have to use the knowledge). If youre not a developer, you should still be able to follow along with the code examples because we'll break down the logic step-by-step. Basically what Im saying is... that well learn by doing here.Sign up for this class and youll learn:What is an API?How an understanding of APIs can help cut development time of a project in halfWhat APIs are available and worth knowing about?How to register a Facebook App so that we can start using the Facebook APIHow to write code to make an API call to Facebook that delivers a users Top 10 Facbook likesHow to set up an app with the Twilio APIThis Class IncludesOver 2 hours of easy to follow video contentA project designed by me for you to be able to apply your skills A quiz The final slide deckCode examples for working with the Facebook and Twilio API.
