Description

Open the World of Data with Web APIs All are welcome at this introductory workshop on APIs. An Application Program Interface (API) in simple terms is an interface between applications that allows you to access information or data on the web that might otherwise be difficult or time consuming to collect. For example, a web API can be used to access data.gov, quickly download data from Twitter, or geolocate address information. In this workshop, librarians Phil White and Andrew Johnson will explain how web APIs work and how to use them to access data. Phil and Andrew will also demonstrate easy to use tools to get started with APIs. No programming experience necessary. (Instructors: Phil White and Andrew Johnson)
