We’re pleased to invite our extended community to attend a free DPLA workshop webinar — An Introduction to DPLA’s Application Programming Interface — taking place on February 11, 2016 at 3:30PM Eastern.
This webinar, led by DPLA Technology Specialist Mark Breedlove, will introduce the fundamentals of distributed web application architecture to an uninitiated audience, with a special focus on the DPLA’s Application Programming Interface, or API. We will cover what a web application is, what an API is, how web applications on different sites communicate with one another, and why. This webinar should interest those who have been hearing about “APIs” and “web applications,” but do not fully understand what these terms mean; or those who understand generally, but want to get a better sense of what the DPLA’s API can do and what role it plays at a high level. We aim to have participants leave the webinar feeling confident in their ability to discuss web APIs and strategies for their implementation.
