Use the News! An Introduction to the New York Times API // TECH 668

Zoe Fraade-Blanar, Interactive Technology Consultant, The New York Times 

Monday, August 29th from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.

Vast! Powerful! A little confusing! All of these describe the New York Times data services, the amazing collection of more than a dozen API’s granting direct, real-time access to a huge assortment of information. Including every article the Times has written for the last 30 years, this service can be the backbone of projects ranging from a simple research paper to the most complex journalism startup.

In this course we’ll break down the fundamentals of pulling information using the Times API using a variety of techniques stretching from simple to code-heavy (with PHP). Whether you’re a raw beginner trying to figure out what this API thing is, or a master coder looking to brush up on your skills, you’ll leave this class with a full journalism-hacking toolbelt

Note to attendees: In order to use the New York Times API you will need a NYTimes.com website account. If you do not already have one, go to http://www.nytimes.com to register.

Zoe Fraade-Blanar is a Interactive Technlology Consultant for a number of news media outlets including the New York Times, and an Adjunct Professor with the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute at New York University and the Tisch School of the Arts, ITP. She is also the co-owner of Squishable.com, Inc.
