This two-hour course will provide participants with a basic introduction to working with Application Programing Interfaces (APIs). The course will focus on representational state transfer (REST) web service APIs, introducing how REST APIs work and how they can be used. Then the course will delve into the two things APIs do best: provide users easier access to data and code. The class will provide hands on experience accessing the Twitter and Google Maps APIs, and maybe even delve into basic image analysis using a cloud service API. Participants are required to bring their own laptop computer; access to a Linux system will be provided for the course.
