How To Learn To Use APIs

10 replies
Hi,

There are lots of places that offer APIs and I would like to lean how to harness them.

Where is a good resource for a non-programmer to learn how to use APIs, please?

Thanks,

John

    If you are a non-programmer, you need to have at least some programming background, in order to write some code that uses APIs. I recommend Python, I don't know it myself, but I keep hearing that it is a simplified programming language to make programming easy for new developers.

    Next step is to find a website that offers an API and write some code that uses that API to display results or modify things.

    Hey, dude, if u wanna integrate advertiser by API, U need to write some code to do it.
    And u also can find the third service about API integration, such as Apidge, www.apidge.com.
    The System has integrated more than 20 system. U also can supply a new system to them, they will integrate it in 30 minutes!

    When you'll learn programming you'll understand how to use the API

    I use Java (servlets) to develop a lot of tools using API resources. I think you really need a programming background to use API resources effectively. That said here is an article about APIs for non programmers- https://technologyadvice.com/blog/in...to-use-an-api/ , which may be useful.

    If u are smart, u have no need to go deeply in programming. Most names of functions talk about what they're created for, so step by step u can change any line the way u want. Use forums to ask and learn.

    Every site is unique in Database structure. You should know basic of Programming and Database, so you can understand the concept of API. PHP is simple programming language if you know

  • You just have to get the response by providing suitable credentials and then just add logics to take the data out and show it.
