API's are all the rave now; aren't they?

Web Design is complicated: UX (user experience), UI (user interface), front-end client work, graphics design, Usability and Accessibility, (where usability is how simple the site is to get things done and accessibility being how persons with disabilities use the site). There is a lot going on with Web Design.

# :) API's are all the rave now; aren't they? Even WordPress has an API. Basically, as you might know, an API gives us a way communicate. Like #linkedin , for example. The picture below shows a box labeled "Python" from a presentation by @tanya describing the construction of a URL (in the #Python Language) to connect to #googlemaps -- obviously to return a map from google. This is an API call. Also, the Python program is supported by #BASH scripting and uses a Postgress dB. The thin long line near the bottom with an arrow pointing left shows the HTTP return fom google. And Lastly, the grouping of symbols in the upper left represents a #JSON (JavaScript Object Notation ) file that also might be returned with the #HTML (from above).
