Example Webservice / API call- 4 GoogleMaps API services

In the following video I work through connecting for four separate APIs which are all under GoogleMaps.  It is very easy to connect to them with AutoHotkey.  Simply get your own token and then adapt the below code to your needs!

Example Webservice / API call- Connecting to Zoom & extracting info

For the the AutoHotkey Webinars we use Zoom which is a great, robust, inexpensive tool for hosting online meetings/webinars.  They have a free version which allows you to connect with people for up to 45 minutes!

Below I walk through the following code where I demonstrate how I extract information about users & their meetings.   This is a great example of how many vendors offer APIs to connect to their tools.

Example Webservice / API call- Zillow -Get deep search results

In this review we follow-up on our API webinar showing how to access Real estate / home values through the Zillow API.  Here is the code I walk through in the below video.   This API is pretty straight-foward and easy to use.  It can be a lot of fun to see what your home, and your neighbor’s is worth!

Example Webservice / API call- Yelp and working through oAuth2

In our API webinar we discussed how oAuth2 works however there is no better way to explain it than to actually work through an example!  In the below video & code I demonstrate how to access Yelp to perform the “handshake” with oAuth1 and receive the oAuth2 authentication.  I also demonstrate using a named Regular Expression to isolate the returned token.
