This is the second in a series of courses for technical writers who want to learn how to write API documentation. The first course is called “Learn API Technical Writing: JSON and XML for Writers”, and it is recommended that you first take that course, unless you are very familiar with JSON and XML, and how to document them.
This course teaches how to document REST APIs. No programming experience is required, but technical writers with programming experience who want to know more about REST APIs will still find it useful.
What are APIs?
APIs (Application Program Interfaces) define how software systems talk to each other, and API documentation is a rapidly growing field. There is a strong need for writers who can understand APIs and explain them so that software developers can understand how to use them. API writers get to be in on the cutting edge of technology in high–paying positions.
What is REST?
REST (Representational State Transfer) is a popular style of web API, and it’s used to communicate data between devices and servers. Different data is contained in different parts of the API requests and responses, and this course explains what those different parts are and how to document them.
