Event Details

Calling All Technical Writers! Are You Looking for a New Career Opportunity?

Writing API (Application Programming Interface) documentation is a growth area for many technical writers. With APIs increasingly used to add new capabilities to apps, a Forbes magazine article declared 2017 as "the year of the API economy." Among today's estimated 50,000 public web APIs, the REST design has become the dominant force. 

In BWA's March 3rd program, you will learn: 

  • What is a REST API? 
  • Do I need to be a developer to document a REST API? 
  • What are HTTP methods and status codes?
  • Is there a way to automate REST API documentation? 

With API documentation becoming a major career opportunity for technical writers, you won't want to miss this free program.
