API (Application Programming Interface) is a series of rules and requirements that allows one software application to make use of data and features that have been transferred from another application. For example, when you type into google ‘restaurants near me’, the Google Maps API will ask for your location to find places in a near proximity. API essentially acts as an intermediary to allow applications to communicate and function with third party developers, businesses, and internal departments.
API development enables businesses to connect their various day-to-day applications, saving time and breaking down communication barriers that impede collaboration and innovation. An API developer themselves will lead the development of new features and fixing any defects, whilst also producing software builds using software code. They will further build domain knowledge and support platform architects.
