Ajax + APIs

Whenever someone says “Twitter has an API”, what they mean is that Twitter has a particular way to let other sites remix their data to create brand new projects.

If you want to make a custom Instagram feed, a Figma-driven client presentation tool, a Bitcoin tracker or your own redesigned version of Twitter, all of these projects need to communicate back-and-forth with a data source.

Our short online course, aimed at beginners, is designed for people who want to work with APIs (how different websites talk to each other) and Ajax (one way of grabbing and sending that data) together to make remixed projects.

Here’s how we’re different...

Support that actually helps.

Forever-access to our online Slack community of creative students from around the world, learning to code together, plus a Q+A section on every page. With our team based worldwide, we can support you whether you're coding early in the morning or late at night.

Real-world projects you'll want to create and remix.

Our course is practical, unlike other programs that take forever before you make your first real-world project. We care about design and focus on creative industries — it's not a computer science lecture, you're learning to make projects you'd want to make.

Structured, and flexible.

Our course is set-up to deliver real projects – no bullshit! – and we designed it so it’s totally flexible. While you can learn at your own pace, we’ll be here to guide you through-out your learning.

Design focused.

You don't need to be creative to take our courses, but everything we do is focused on making beautiful sites you actually want to make. This isn't your average code school — we focus on the practical aspect of learning.

Who is the course for?

Anyone who is looking for ways to work with data from third party services such as Figma, Contentful, Twitter or Instagram.

We would recommend a little knowledge of HTML, CSS and Javascript before starting this course – taking one of Foundation HTML, CSS + JS or Javascript for Designers courses will be sufficient – as we'll be covering how to work with them in context of sending and receiving data to web pages.

A portion of the course covers back-end coding with Ruby but prior knowledge of Ruby or back-end coding isn't needed to join this course.

Most of our students work in the creative industries – designers, strategists and copywriters are the most common jobs amongst our students – but you can work in any industry to join the course.

What do I need?

A computer with Mac OS X 10.9 or above, Windows XP or above, or a recent Linux version installed and a broadband internet connection. That’s it!
