Today, the web is buzzing with the talk about web APIs. It seems that everyone - Facebook, Twitter, Netflix - has some sort of API you can use to integrate with their services. APIs are fundamental to how services on the web work today and data is the new currency. Knowing how to put them to work or how to roll your own can be a huge addition to your development toolbox. This session is all about web-based APIs (like REST). If you have only the vaguest idea about what an API is, or have ever wondered what REST was all about -- then this session is for you! We'll cover examples of using common public APIs and how you can put them to work in your own apps, and how to go about creating your own APIs, or use the REST services in IBM Domino.
