APIs have emerged as a new form of delivering data to end users. Rather than downloading large bulky outdated snapshots of data that are only partially relevant to your needs, APIs enable individuals to issue specialized requests from data sources in real time.
In this workshop, you’ll get an introduction to one of the most common kinds of API, the REST API. You’ll interact with a number of APIs along the way toward the final goal of the Twitter API. No coding or engineering degrees required. By the end of the workshop you’ll know everything you need to start exploring other REST APIs.
