This Meetup is past

Details

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!
