Application Program Interface - What exactly is an API and how do they work?


An API, or Application Programming Interface, is essentially a protocol that governs how two computer systems interact with each other. It can be thought of as a set of instructions for how software components should interact. Examples of API usage include a cloud-based application communicating with a server, servers exchanging information, or software interacting with an operating system.
