Event description

Description

Tech comm industry leader and blogger Tom Johnson will lead an immersive day-long course on writing documentation for REST APIs. Rather than focusing on abstract concepts, he will contextualize REST APIs with a direct, hands-on approach.

He will introduce learners to API documentation by working with a simple weather API and, in the process, help the group learn about endpoints, parameters, data types, authentication, curl, JSON, the command line, Chrome’s Developer Console, JavaScript, and more. By learning about these topics via a real scenario, learners will derive more meaning from the concepts they are exposed to.

The end of the course will cover standards, tools, and specifications for REST APIs. Specifically, Tom will discuss the required sections in API documentation, help the group analyze examples of REST API documentation from various companies, show learners how to join an open-source project to get experience, and more.
