Curious what an API is? Ever want to pull data from the web and need to read an API's documentation and not quite sure where to start?

We'll discuss the basics of what makes a RESTful API as well as how to use the Twitter API in this General Assembly & PyLadies sponsored workshop. You can expect to spend time reading API documentation, learning how to use a Python library that support OAuth, and pulling tweet data from the Twitter API.
