Application Programming Interface (or API)…What the What?

Take advantage of FREE knowledge and register for Digital Government University’s webinar airing today (Wednesday, the 19th) from 2:30-3:30 on some awesome case studies on how API’s are used to improve government.

If this sounds intimidating, don’t fret. You can start from the beginning with Dig Gov U and learn what exactly an API is and what makes them amazing in the first place.

Are you are dying of curiosity? OK. OK.

The (very) short and simple definition is: an API drives software-to-software communication to perform a task. With all sorts of data out there up for grabs, new API’s emerge every day to make lives easier. For example, there is an API that uses google maps to allow people to search for health care in their area related to HIV/AIDS.

Tune into Howto.gov’s Digital Government University and learn about how you can use API’s to make government more efficient.
