What's an API?

“API” is the abbreviation for “Application programming interface.” An API is a mechanism developed specifically for one database or piece of software that allows other systems to communicate with it. For example, Google Maps has an API that allows a business to embed a map of their location onto their own website. Behind the scenes, the Google Maps API is sending the latest map information to the website every time someone views the web page.
