API’s & Mashup’s and Pipes and … all that


I say. I thought i had this subject figured after being able to understand the basics of writing codec, now we’ve got things called pipes and API’s. API’s refers to Application Programming Interface. They are are really about sharing data and functionality that way software and interfaces can be used by others in ways we might have never thought possible. Api’s are essentially the building blocks behind programming.

Here’s what’s called an ‘API playground‘ on google
