Le Wagon Workshop - APIs For Beginners

Feb 7, 2018 · Montréal, Canada

Have you ever wondered how Facebook is able to automatically display your Instagram photos? How about how Evernote syncs notes between your computer and smartphone? If so, then it’s time to get excited!

Martin, Le Wagon Montréal teacher, will walk you through what it takes to link different IT systems together thanks to this common tool called an Application Programming Interface (API).

We will start off easy, explaining the basics of (web) APIs: what they are, how they work, and why they matter.

This workshop is for complete beginners. It is free and open to all.

Instructor: Martin Giannakopoulos, Le Wagon alumni & teacher (Montréal), Full-Stack developer.
