(In plain English)\n\n\n\n### What is an API?\n- An API (Application Programming Interface) is a means of communication and ruleset to allow two systems to talk to each other. \n- This can be seen as a similar process to applying for a passport, in which you have to adhere to an established protocol. \n- Your app will be able to communicate and interact with different systems through their respective API's. \n\n### How Does an API Work?\n- When communication is initiated from your app, you have to submit appropriate inputs and an API key to the API's endpoint. \n- Each endpoint will have its own specified protocol for what inputs are required and the resulting outcome. \n- If the correct inputs are not given, the request will be rejected. \n- Once the request is successful, a result is passed back from the API in a data format, such as JSON. \n\n### Example API\n- News API is an example of an API, which provides access to headlines and news articles from a variety of sources. \n- The API call can be entered into a web browser with the appropriate parameters, along with the API key, to get the desired results. \n- The result is then in a data format that can be processed and the information can be used within the app.\n\n\n### What is an SDK?\n- SDK stands for software development kit. \n- It is a collection of tools that includes easy-to-use libraries and snippets of code, making it simpler to work with an API in a particular language or framework. \n- There are thousands of APIs available and these can be found through API directories like [Programmable Web](","videoTitle":"What is an API and how does it work?
