So we are now 20 weeks in to our adventure called UIT and this week we were introduced to the world of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces).
To get there we had a great tutorial put together by Jeff Andersen of Salesforce. The concept of his tutorial was to show us how to create a simple photo album uploading platform that integrated with a relational database, in this case PostgreSQL.
It was a great week of learning and a little overwhelming because there is so much content out there to consume. It is important to find a balance between consumption, learning and doing.
