The Hitchhiker’s Guide to APIs

Hitchikers Guide to APIsThursday, February 13, 2020 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

APIs are more than just shoving JSON back and forth over HTTP. In this meetup you can take a dive into the essence of APIs, HTTP, and paradigms. The meetup is going to touch on a little bit of everything, from documentation to implementation, to testing — both from a producer and consumer’s perspective. The goal is to be able to walk away with a wider view of what APIs are, some tricks & tips, and to provide some concrete examples for the abstract concepts that surround. Location: Wayfair Boston, 4 Copley Place, Boston, MA. How to find the meetup:  Enter the Copley Place Mall. Head to the Skylobby (up the escalators in front of Barney’s) Let security know you’re here for BostonPHP. They will direct you from there.
