Learn APIs with Codecademy

Mashape Codecademy Badge

Last month, Codecademy announced a special “API track” that focus on courses teaching budding developers to code applications that consume APIs.

Yesterday Codecademy has grown that list to 56 more APIs, including Mashape!

What is Codecademy?

Codecademy is a platform that provides a way for developers to teach; and would-be developers to learn how to code.  It provides course-creation tools, as well as “badges” (awards) for developers when they finish certain exercises.

The great thing about Codecademy’s API track is that it not only teaches you how to code, but it also let’s you learn about a specific API that you might have been curious with in the past (e.g. learn YouTube + javascript simultaneously).

Mashape’s course in Codecademy teaches you how to mash-up APIs in Ruby (using WebKnox and Word Cloud Maker API).
