I am speaking at WordCamp Vancouver 2012 on Interacting with External APIs

October 8, 2012

I will be talking about Interacting with External APIs. A blurb about my talk follows:

There is a lot of talk these days about taping into the resources available through external APIs (Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, etc). Much of the functionality needed to interact with APIs is already included in the core through the HTTP class. In this session you will learn the concepts behind pulling data from an external API, sending data to an external API, how to utilize WordPress caching to increase speed and functionality, etc.
