Application Programming Interface
An API, or application programming interface, is a set of protocols and tools used to build software applications. APIs allow different software systems to communicate with each other and exchange information, enabling developers to create new applications and services that leverage existing data and functionality. APIs can take many forms, including REST APIs, SOAP APIs, and webhooks. APIs are commonly used to integrate third-party services and applications into websites and web applications, and can help improve user experience and streamline workflow.
