Introduction to The New York Times API // TECHNICAL 141
Tuesday, June 12th from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Brad Stenger, Developer Advocate, The New York Times
Media and technology are force multipliers for learning.
It's one thing to take a class, a book chapter or an online program or classroom instruction. It's another thing entirely to make something in the process of learning something. And when the making involves media and/or technology, that work often reinforces the education, whatever the subject.
APIs, and especially media APIs like the ones The New York Times offers, are a testbed for creating these powerful self-learning tools. Once you have access to these APIs you don't need to ask permission to make something, and nobody will tell you what you should (or shouldn't) make with them. The more you learn about how the APIs work, the more opportunistic you can become in applying them, and then you learn still more about how the APIs work -- a virtuous cycle.
In this session, we'll use Times APIs to create tools for in-depth learning, and in the process, learn some fundamentals about how to use the APIs. We'll start down the path of creating the virtuous cycle, the force multiplier for learning.
