I've seen API mentioned a lot on your site, what is API?
Your site mentions that API is a great tool for creating customized applications. What is API and what can I do with it?
Is this a good question?
We live in a complex world full of systems that communicate amongst each other. If these systems do not have a good means of interfacing, or connecting, proper communication cannot occur leading to confusion. An API (Application Programable Interface) is a standardized way to inform another system on the best possible way to communicate to your system.
I'll also use the Wikipedia definition for API:
An application programming interface (API) is a source code based specification intended to be used as an interface by software components to communicate with each other. An API may include specifications for routines, data structures, object classes, and variables.
