An Introduction to Open Data and APIs

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 - 11:00am


This talk will introduce you to the fundamentals of open data and APIs on the modern web. By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to read and work with URLs, JSON, and some APIs that use them.

No programming or technical background necessary, and everything will happen inside of a web browser. The presenter will be using Chrome, with the “JSON Formatter” extension installed. If you’re planning to follow along with the workshop (recommended), then you should use Chrome or Firefox. If using Firefox, the “JSON View” extension is recommended.

While most uses of APIs do require some programming, everyone will find it valuable to demystify the mechanics of how open data and the web function. If you work with data in any way (even if you don’t code), you may be surprised at how helpful these concepts are in your work!
