API Fundamentals for FileMaker Developers: Start to Finish, Step-by-Step Training

In this course Productive Computing University, Stuart covers the API Fundamentals for FileMaker Developers.

Sending and receiving data through an API (Application Programming Interface) has recently exploded in popularity. APIs were once just an alternative method to access or transfer data between two sources. However, they are now becoming the new standard in platform and app integration.

Learn the world of APIs starting from scratch: how they work, common use cases, how to set up the connection, how to prepare API calls, and how to parse responses.

This course reviews the general API process but focuses on working directly with the FileMaker Data API as the foundation and specifically connecting to a database hosted on FileMaker Server.

The API Fundamentals for FileMaker Developers course is available for purchase as a stand-alone course or as part of the University Bundle.

If you are new to the process of integrating APIs with FileMaker, have a look at our Exploring the Basics of API Integration with FileMaker blog post.
