In this course, you'll learn about APIs, or Application Programming Interfaces, which are an aspect of web development that can dramatically enrich your web projects! RESTful APIs are a great place to start, since they mimic the way the web functions at a broad level.
By using an application's API, you gain instant access to third-party information that will save you time and energy. For example, by using a weather service's API, you can integrate their weather-related data into your own web projects! 🌦
Throughout the course, you'll encounter examples of REST APIs, including familiar services like Instagram and Gmail, as well as IBM's powerful Watson artificial intelligence service through their Bluemix cloud platform.
