Have you ever wondered how the information that you consume and generate online persists when you are offline, and how your feeds are different than your friends and family? Join us in a discussion about web based APIs, a fundamental building block of the modern internet. We'll talk about how APIs are commonly organized, and how an API knows who you are, and what you do. We will also look at some freely available APIs that you can integrate with to make some interesting products. This discussion will be a fun review for seasoned developers, and eye opening to those who are just learning about or interested in web technologies.
