About this event

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.

The course will be taught by Pamela Fox, a local web developer. If you're interested in helping out as a teaching assistant, please let us know.

You can start arriving at 6 if you would like to grab dinner, and you should be prepared to start the class at 6:30. We'll finish up the class at 9.

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 Facebook for the location and food! Please bring your ID with you, as security will check your name at the door.

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