GSA’s digital teams are offering a user-friendly intro course to APIs. Regardless of your skill level, you will walk away from this lesson understanding what APIs are and how developers use them.

Every federal agency is scaling out its use of APIs so even if they are not a part of your normal daily work, learning what they are, how they work, and why they are changing government.

This is an in-person, interactive session led by Eric Mill, a key developer on GSA’s 18F team and an expert in open data and government technology. Again, this session is designed so that even complete beginners will be able to follow along, so if anyone you know is wondering what all the fuss about APIs is about – this is for you.

Who should attend:

  • Webmasters
  • System owners
  • Digital engagement staff
  • CIO and CTO staff
  • Government staff interested in open data efforts
  • Anyone who’s curious!

What you’ll need:

  • A laptop, with a working connection to the public Internet
  • A recent version of Firefox or Chrome
  • An extension installed for Firefox or Chrome to view JSON in your browser (please install beforehand)
