WTF Are APIs?!

WTF Are APIs?!

Do people keep talking to you about APIs? Are these people starting to drive you crazy? Are you frustrated at night when you go to bed because you don’t really understand just what the f**k APIs actually are? If this describes you then you won’t want to miss this talk!

In this talk, Randall Degges, Developer Evangelist at Stormpath, will teach you what APIs are, how they work, and how to use them. You’ll also take a look at several free and popular API services, and learn how to make use of them.
