Today they’re launching a new spate of courses, including an introduction to HTTP and APIs and courses in other partner APIs, including Bit.ly and NPR. To participate, we’ve submitted lessons on using our Capitol Words API in Python. You’ll learn the basics of making requests to the API, how to use the different endpoints, how to sort, paginate and how to use different query parameters. It’s geared towards a beginner to intermediate Python student with minimal knowledge of RESTful APIs and JSON (all of which can be gleaned from the intro course mentioned above).
We hope to add more languages and APIs in the future, but we thought Capitol Words would be a fun API to kick off with. So, go take a look! And don’t forget to check out our other APIs here.
