Share API Workshop with Sarah Maddox

Event Details

This is a practical course on API technical writing, consisting of lectures interspersed with hands­on sessions where participants will apply what they have learned. The focus will be on APIs themselves as well as on documentation, since technical writers need to be able to understand and use a product before they can document it.

The course will include the following sessions:

  • Lecture: Introduction to APIs, including a demo of some REST and JavaScript APIs.
  • Hands­on: Play with a REST API and a JavaScript API.
  • Lecture: JavaScript essentials.
  • Hands­on: Use JavaScript to exercise the sample JavaScript API in a more in­depth manner.
  • Lecture: The components of API documentation.
  • Hands­on: Generate reference documentation using Javadoc.
  • Lecture: Beyond Javadoc ­ other doc generation tools.
Lunch will be provided.
