What in the world is an API?
If you use a travel app (e.g., Expedia) to find what different airlines are flying to your destination, or if you’ve seen Google Maps embedded on a site, then you’ve interacted with an API.
An Application Programming Interface (API) is a set of operations that allows applications to access data and interact with external software components.
An API delivers the user’s action to a system, then sends the system’s reply to that user. When someone clicks “Add to Cart,” the API tells the site that a product was added, the site puts the product in the cart, and the cart gets updated.
We use APIs all the time but most of us never think about them at all. They greatly expand the services that a site or app can render. This service expansion is made possible by developers of both the APIs and the sites that use them. Many site developers don’t need to create APIs – they just need to use the APIs that are made available by whatever product or service is being used.
