TIPS : An application programming interface (API) is a way for different computer programs to interact with one another. Different computer programs are written in different languages, but often must communicate with one another despite the language barrier. Think of an API as being a door that allows outside programs to interact with the specific program to which a given API applies. As a programmer, if you don’t use the door to access that specific program, you aren’t getting access.
