We’ve had many requests to provide information and guidance regarding the API’s available for Business Catalyst. In order to oblige those requests we have planned a webinar for Wednesday, September 7, 2011 at 5:00pm Mountain Daylight Time. The webinar will be 1 hour long, followed by a 30 minute Q&A session.

There is a lot of information to cover regarding the API’s available to you, and for this first webinar we are going to be providing an introduction to working with them.  By the end of the session it is my hope that you will have a better idea of what the API’s are, what they are capable of, and how that translates into solving problems for you and your customers. We will walk you through the “hello world” of the BC API’s and show you how easy it is to get started using them. We will also walk through at least one demo application and show you the API’s in action.

No prior development experience is necessary; we intend to provide a high level overview of their functionality and usage. Later on we will be providing more in depth technical information, code samples, and pre built applications for you to take and make use of.

Below is a basic outline of the topics we intend to cover:

  1. Introduction
  2. Setting up the development environment for first time use
  3. API documentation and how to use it
  4. Connecting to the API and making requests
  5. Demonstration code and sample applications
  6. Conclusion
  7. Question and answer session

We will need you to pre-register for the event so that we can plan accordingly for the right number of people, which you can do by visiting the link below.
