2019 API Doc 101 Webinar Series

Starting in September, the STC Arizona Chapter is hosting a webinar series for Application Programming Interface (API) documentation designed for technical communicators and students who want to learn more about documenting APIs. The course will focus primarily on Representational State Transfer (REST) APIs.

Course Details

  • Where: Online (Zoom meetings)
  • When: September and October 2019 (see dates and times below)

Course Materials

The “textbook” for the course is Tom Johnson’s (outstanding) Documenting APIs, a Guide for Technical Writers. Tom developed the free, self-paced course specifically for technical communicators (thanks, Tom!).

Anyone can take the online course for free, and if you’re comfortable with the technology and concepts, you should be able to get through it okay. The API Documentation 101 course is for those who prefer to collaborate and learn in a "classroom" setting.

Course Outline

We'll cover the course material in 10 webinars. Before each webinar, you’ll read the sections in the API documentation course, complete all activities, and be prepared to discuss the content during the webinar.

Lessons and dates are as follows (subject to change):
