APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) are a powerful tool for for collecting information for analysis or to use in another application. In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn how to:
- Read API documentation
- Use Python in an online Colaboratory notebook to access an API
- Use Python libraries, including requests and pandas, to retrieve and process data from API's
It is helpful to have prior exposure to Python, such as through the Introduction to Python for Data Analysis workshop. Bring a laptop for this hands-on workshop. No installation of Python is needed.
