If you’re starting to document a REST API, this workshop is for you. Join Tom Johnson for a full day workshop on #API Documentation at the Society for Technical Communication Summit on Sun, May 5 in Denver, CO. In this workshop, you’ll learn about API documentation in the context of using a simple weather API — making requests and analyzing the responses. We’ll cover the essential elements of API reference topics (such as endpoints, parameters, and response schemas), how OpenAPI specification and Swagger work (as well as tools to simplify spec development), expected non-reference topics (such as authorization and rate limiting), version control workflows (in Git and GitHub), and more. If you’re starting to document a REST API, this workshop will get you up and running in the right direction. You’ll leave with a solid grasp of the necessary components of REST API documentation as well as how to deliver an interactive learning experience that developers want. Takeaways: - REST APIs involve requests and responses, not too unlike visiting a web page — you make a request to a resource stored on a server, and the server responds with the requested information. - Web API reference topics have essential sections: resource descriptions, endpoints and methods, parameters, request examples, and response examples + schemas. - The OpenAPI specification provides a standard structure for describing your REST API; Swagger UI can consume the OpenAPI spec to provide interactive documentation.
