As a Web Developer, I am frequently asked by my clients to develop applications that integrate with the external online services that their business or customers are already using.
In these situations, I need to work with an API – API stands for Application Programming Interface and acts as a communication gateway between by clients project and the external service.
API’s are used all over the web, they allow you to sign in to websites, make purchases, interact with your social media unique ways and have many more uses.
Why use an API?
Making us of an API for your project is an attractive option for developers and their clients alike when planning their application or website.
