Developers often talk about APIs, or Application Programming Interfaces. It sounds very technical but often an API can be very simple and easy to use without specialist programming skills. In this video, I demonstrate how you can embed a simple quiz into the iGoogle environment using an off-the-shelf ‘gadget’ and customize the way it is called by modifying the web address (URL) used to launch the quiz.
For more information about the techniques shown in the video take a look at the iGoogle How To on developer.questionmark.com. And why not use the forums on the developer Web site to ask questions or report how this goes for you?
I’ll be talking about these and other new developments at the Questionmark Users Conference March 14 – 17, so I hope to see you there.
