"How Do I Use A RESTful API?"

I remember when I first started learning web development, I was so confused by API's let alone RESTful API's. I've still yet to master the use of RESTful API's but the easiest way to explain it is it's an API that makes use of HTTP Requests to get data from a particular URL.

The best way to wrap your mind around this in my experience is to do this awesome tutorial where you get first hand experience working with the NY Times Article API which is a RESTful API that allows you to pull articles from NY Times website and embed in your website.

Now don't just sit there, go try out the tutorial right now and let me know if it helps you to better understand how RESTful API's.
