In this course, students will explore the world of open APIs and learn how to access their data. They will then create data-rich web applications using existing, publicly available API data.
Topics will include:
- Understanding and dealing with API structures
- REST API concepts
- Finding available API data
- Connecting APIs to front-end applications
- Updating views to reflect new data
Students will leave this course equipped to produce data-driven web applications that update in response to incoming data from open APIs. Additionally, students will complete a data-driven app for their GitHub portfolio—an important step in the frontend developer journey.
