Intro to APIs
Please login to enroll is this event.
Are you interested in understanding how to collect and analyze information or create a custom web map with limited coding experience? If so, Intro to APIs is a good place to start.
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 they work and 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 OpenStreetMaps/Leaftlet APIs, and maybe even delve into basic image or text analysis using a cloud service API.
Participants are required to bring their own laptop computer. For participants using a Windows laptops, please make sure that you have an SSH client installed (A free client can be downloaded and installed from: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html).
