Advanced JS: Working with APIs

An API is a service that lets one website use data or functionality from another website, and most modern webpages rely on at least one API - like the Facebook API for social interaction, the Google Analytics API for tracking, or the DoubleClick API for ads. In this workshop, we'll talk about how JavaScript-based APIs actually work behind the scenes, and give you some hands-on experience in using them, plus introduce you to a wealth of APIs to enhance your websites.

This workshop will be taught by Liz Howard. Liz is a Teacher at Girl Develop It and a professional mentor and consultant. She's been coding for 9 years, and really loves to teach. If you're interested in helping out as a teaching assistant, please let us know.

Please install the following prior to the workshop:

  • A code editor. We recommend Notepad++ for Windows and SublimeText for Mac.
  • A modern browser. We recommend Google Chrome (best) or Mozilla Firefox with the Firebug plugin.

Prerequisite: Some familiarity with HTML and JavaScript, like via our workshops or elsewhere.

Thanks to our sponsor Citizen Space for the great location!

If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, please request a GDI scholarship.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
