Some APIs

Homework

Propose a final project. Describe it in a blog post.

Production

Create a web application that uses data from one of the APIs above, or one you find on your own. Go beyond just spitting out the data — do something interesting with it. For instance, display a color or image based on the current temperature.

You might try creating a mashup that combines information from two different APIs, for example, show tweets tagged “rain” when it is raining, “snow” when it is snowing, etc.

Due next week (3/4). Blog write-up due 8pm Mar 3.
