A Dozen Microsoft APIs for Web Developers
In a previous slideshow, you were presented with a number of APIs that provide access to features of Microsoft Bing and the search functionality that Bing provides. In this slideshow, I'll expand up on that list of APIs and present you with a dozen more APIs that Microsoft provides.
The benefit of using an APIs is that it reduces the amount of code you need to create on your web pages. APIs provide access to coded functionality. In the case of the Microsoft APIs, this functionality ranges from access to information and knowledge all the way to access to various tools and programs that Microsoft has created. The APIs include several cognitive services as well. Each of the following slides highlights one of twelve APIs from Microsoft that you might find useful. Note that these along with the Bing APIs mentioned earlier are only part of the APIs you can access from your web pages!
