Big web-based projects often require a whole suite of software applications to complete. Many software developers have developed APIs, or application program interfaces, to allow two systems of software to talk to each other. They’re invisible to users, operating in the back-end so a user’s experience is smooth. Think of an API as a private line that software can use to solve problems. And APIs are infinitely scalable, evolving as software does.
API integration is one way to ensure that you create a networked, agile suite of software that saves you having to repeat tasks or commands.
