In this hour and a half virtual event hosted by Flatiron School, you'll hear Cory Althoff, author of The Self-Taught Programmer: The Definitive Guide to Programming Professionally, and developer advocate at Vonage, discuss his experience as a self-taught programmer, the community that he started, and his thoughts on coding bootcamps and why people should consider them. Cory will then host an introductory workshop focusing on APIs (application programming interface).

You will leave this workshop with the core concepts of:

  • What is an API

  • How APIs work

  • Examples of popular APIs

  • How APIs can be used to create fun side projects that help you get hired

Cory Althoff is an author, programmer, and speaker.
