What is an API?
API is the acronym for Application Programming Interface, which is a software middle man that allows two applications to talk to each other. Each time you use an app like Facebook, send an instant message, or check the weather on your phone, you’re using an API.
One common API usage example we come across on a daily basis is weather data. Found on all platforms, like Google Search, Apple’s Weather app, or even from your smart home device. When you search on Google, “weather + [city name]”, you’ll see a snippet at the top of the search results with the current weather conditions and forecast of your particular search query.
As Google isn’t the business that produces the weather data, they receive this information from a source with the needed data. They do this via an API, which sends them the latest weather details in a way that’s easy for them to reformat.
Why would I need a fantasy football API?
Using a fantasy football API is beneficial as it will allow you to display live data easily to all that are participating, without them having to log in and see the results manually.
Integrating an API with your businesses communication systems keeps everyone involved and motivated in participation as they can see positions change and the outcomes of matches seamlessly, which will keep everyone on their toes and talking about it. In doing this, it generates an exciting workplace where your team is building relationships and boosting morale.
