In this workshop we’ll explore working with Web APIs. We’ll cover what Web APIs are, why they’re useful, how to use them, and how to integrate external Web APIs into a Ruby on Rails application. Along the way, we’ll explore various tools, techniques, and Ruby libraries that are useful for working with Web APIs. We’ll then build a small Rails app that takes some form input and uses that to send an SMS message via the Vonage SMS API.

Session pre-requisites

Ruby and Rails installed on your machine.
