An application-programming interface (API) is a set of programming instructions and standards for accessing a Web-based software application or Web tools. A software company releases its API to the public so that other software developers can design products that are powered by its service. 

Learn how to take advantage of all the great APIs out there, starting with the Twilio API and the Stripe API. Both are great tools to help you power up your web development skills quickly.
