REST API allows applications to exchange data.
REST stands for Representational State Transfer, which is a software architectural style that defines a set of constraints to be used for creating web services.
API stands for Application Programming Interface, which is a computing interface that defines interactions between multiple software intermediaries.
Why do you need a REST API?
Instead of exchanging data manually between applications (such as exporting a list of users from another application and uploading it to SpotMe), the REST API allows you to directly exchange data between applications and SpotMe.
This is possible thanks to a list of API endpoints that SpotMe has developed, where each endpoint allows you to pull or push data from/to SpotMe.
With the SpotMe API you will be able to pull or push;
- Users (including their photos).
- Speakers/moderators (including their photos).
- Session tags & registrations.
- Sponsors (including their assets).
And many more...
