An API (Application Programming Interface) is a set of protocols, routines, and tools for building software and applications. It acts as an intermediary, allowing different software programs to communicate with each other. APIs are fundamental to modern software development, enabling the integration of third-party services, data exchange, and functionality between applications. They simplify the coding process, allowing developers to use pre-defined functions to perform complex operations without writing the code from scratch. APIs are used in various contexts, including web-based services, operating systems, database systems, and computer hardware, facilitating the seamless operation and integration of different systems. With the rise of cloud computing, mobile applications, and the Internet of Things (IoT), APIs have become even more critical, powering the connectivity between devices, applications, and services, enhancing user experiences, and driving innovation in technology.
