What is an API?

An application programming interface, better known as an API, is how programs and websites communicate with each other.

Basically, an API can be a library that includes tools, routines, object classes, protocols, etc., which helps developers create programs to interact with other software.

An API can be very important in business because it can allow you to open up data and functionality to other developers and businesses.

At their core, APIs, also called microservices, power what has been referred to as “the internet of things”, enabling virtually everything to become connected.
