You may know what an API (application programming interface) is, but how do you actually make one that works? Following on last year’s successful program introducing APIs, this session will provide a hands-on demonstration. Participants will interact with presenters and experiment with creating their own APIs in a safe environment. Participants will learn what it takes to create a working API, where APIs can be most useful, and best practices for implementing APIs from presenters who have successfully utilized them in their own libraries.

NOTE: Due to the format, this session was not recorded.
