Dave Westerveld gives you a challenge related to understanding the layout of an API and helps you get started with this.
(twinkling music)…- [Instructor] In an earlier video…I already challenged you to try and map out the API…of an app that you might be workin' on.…You probably ran into some difficulties while doing this,…so in this challenge I want to help you get a feel…for some of the things that you can use…to help figure out the layout and structure of an API.…For this challenge,…I want you to go through this Dog API here…at dog.ceo/dog-api…and figure out what you think is interesting…or important in this API.…
So the idea of this challenge is to try…and map out all the different paths…that you might want to test in this API.…You can write them down in any way you want,…maybe in a mind map or just a list,…but try to create a fairly comprehensive summary…of the API paths and commands that should be tested.…As I mentioned, there are a few different sources…of information that can help you with this.…You can look at the documentation that is provided…on this site, as well as some of the values returned…by various calls that you use.…
