Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 21, 2015
Developers have been using application programming interfaces (APIs) as a way of connecting disparate code, accessing databases or computer hardware for many years. While some have used web services to do similar functions, the old standard still provides an easy vehicle to create new applications and modernizer a legacy portfolio. On May 7, 2015 at 11:00 AM EDT, CM First and CA Technologies will present a webcast aimed at helping CA Plex and CA 2E developers understand how critical APIs are to future development efforts, “RESTful API’s for CA 2E and CA Plex.”
CA Technologies will lead off with a roadmap for CA 2E and CA Plex. CM First will bring an API expert to demonstrate how engineers can use APIs and an external workflow tool with CA Plex and CA 2E to create new applications. The practical approach means attendees can use that knowledge immediately to begin dealing with the complex challenges companies face, such as web or mobile-enabling existing applications.
Attendees will learn how APIs can make it possible to modify existing programs to perform new functions or work on devices otherwise not supported. Newer APIs tend to be Web or REST-based APIs. A Web API is a software interface exposed over the HTTP protocol that allows you to develop Web, mobile or cloud applications. REST APIs are a way for Web Services to use the REST architecture to get a lighter weight, lower overhead way to communicate across the Internet.
