In Person
During GEW

By creating a good API, other apps can integrate with yours, which makes it much easier for new users to get involved. When everyone is already using a few dozen web apps already, convincing a user to adopt yours is not an easy sell. Many people are reluctant to sign up for yet another account. So how can we increase adoption of our web app? By creating a really good API that allows other apps to leverage your app’s functionality to improve their own. In this session Jason will cover how APIs allow you as a developer to turn your app into an indispensable service and the impact of an API has on your web app’s structure. Learn how Facebook, Twitter and Bit.ly use APIs to expand their app’s usefulness far beyond the app itself, and create a simple using PHP, jQuery, JSON, HTML5 and CSS3 to get familiar with creating APIs for your own apps.
