About this workshop

In this course, we will look into how we can use javascript to pull in data from various publicly available API services. We will learn about AJAX and how we can work with javascript to fetch our data asynchronously (without reloading the page).

What makes web development exciting today is that we can access publicly available data to build very interesting and useful applications for mass consumption. In this course, we will learn the javascript techniques needed to work with multiple APIs at once and build awesome web apps.

Takeaways

  • Learn how to use the raw XMLHttpRequest and Fetch objects
  • Learn how to write API wrappers in javascript for public data
  • Learn how to leverage promises to cleanly and easily pull data from multiple sources

Prereqs & Preparation
