Ajax + APIs

Ajax + APIs


Remix projects by learning how to work with APIs (how different websites talk to each other) and Ajax (a way of grabbing and working with that data).

Whenever someone says “Twitter has an API”, what they mean is that Twitter has a particular way to let other sites remix their data to create brand new projects.

If you want to make a custom Instagram feed, a Figma-driven client presentation tool, a Bitcoin tracker, or your own redesigned version of Twitter, all of these projects need to communicate back-and-forth with a data source.

Our short online course, aimed at beginners, is designed for people who want to work with APIs (how different websites talk to each other) and Ajax (one way of grabbing and sending that data) together to make remixed projects.


  • Anyone who is looking for ways to work with data from third party services such as Figma, Contentful, Twitter or Instagram.
  • We would recommend a little knowledge of HTML, CSS and Javascript before starting this course – taking one of Foundation HTML, CSS + JS or Javascript for Designers courses will be sufficient – as we’ll be covering how to work with them in context of sending and receiving data to web pages.
  • A portion of the course covers back-end coding with Ruby but prior knowledge of Ruby or back-end coding isn’t needed to join this course.
  • Most of our students work in the creative industries – designers, strategists and copywriters are the most common jobs – but you can work in any industry to join the course.


  • A computer with Mac OS X 10.9 or above, Windows XP or above, or a recent Linux version installed and a broadband internet connection. That’s it!
