  • Steven Cooper: Once Upon An API

    WordCamp Brisbane 2015Speaker: Steven Cooper

    October 1, 2015 — In this session Steven will cover how you can integrate WordPress with external APIs. This will be done with the help of a creatively written story and with the help of actors who will play the part of the various stages of the API calls from retrieving the token from a server to the transaction and even the nasty old chargeback. Steven will be using the PayPal and Braintree API’s as his example API’s.

    Steven’s talk will be entertainment from the very beginning, engaging young and old alike and suitable for all ages. Actors in a talk, who’d have thunk it!? Quite often developers use API’s via SDKs and don’t understand the interactions that are happening so Steven thought this would be a light hearted way to make the journey entertaining!

    Steven’s talk will cover some of the following topics:

    – The benefits of using the WordPress HTTP API.
    – How to use the WordPress HTTP API.
    – Token based authentication with an API.
    – Debugging and testing APIs.
