Working with APIs in Python workshop on 2/21, 2-4pm!

  • Hi everyone!

    Come join us on Tuesday 2/21 from 2-4pm for the Working with APIs in Python workshop!

    In this online synchronous workshop, we will learn how to make data requests from an Application Programming Interface (API) in Python. An API is a server that you can use to retrieve and send data to using code. For example, the weather app on your phone connects to the weather bureau’s API system, which contains daily weather data, and shows you daily weather updates. In this workshop, we will specifically connect to the Metropolitan Museum of Art API to collect data about artworks and the free version of News API for collecting news data.

    Basic knowledge of Python is required for this workshop.
