Make me API Workshop

At LauzHack 2017 I ran my first ever workshop. The workshop was aimed at first-time hackers and provided them with an introduction to what APIs are, how to use them and why they are so great! A brief technical introduction was followed with an interactive demo, where I showed the attendees how to use the Clarifai API to describe what’s in an image, and integrated this with the Twitter API to respond to images received with tags describing the image. Followed by a brief Q&A and prizes.
