DigitalGov University is hosting a webinar on Application Program Interfaces (APIs) Thursday, October 25, at 11 AM ET.
If you’ve heard of and understand the basic concepts of APIs, then this session will take you to the next level of what you can do with them. Bring your questions! There will be time to delve into your agency-specific issues.
Listen to experts from the FCC, Census Bureau, and a Presidential Innovation Fellow explain:
- Benefits of different API formats
- When API keys are needed and when they aren’t
- Guidance for API analytics and documentation
- How to deal with scalability issues
APIs are a big deal. They are web services that let citizens consume your agency’s content and data in ways you may have never imagined. APIs are also an important part of the Digital Government Strategy.
Just as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s weather API powers countless smartphone apps, and the Federal Aviation Administration’s API-enabled flight data helps you check-in to your flight, your data can improve your agency’s customer service.
