On today’s episode of Datanauts, we’re talking about APIs. Applications and services use APIs to interact, exchange information, and execute functions.
While APIs are common for applications, they’re also becoming more relevant across IT disciplines because they enable programmability and automation in networking, cloud computing and more.
Matt and the Datanauts will talk about basic API concepts, why and how we use them, the importance of documentation, the differences between RESTful and non-RESTful APIs, and how to get started using APIs.
