In this article I will share a simple, step by step writing process that has helped me to break through my writer’s block, and gave me the confidence in my ability to write regularly. I hope that it will help aspiring writers to develop their skills in the fastest, most fun way possible.
My biggest dream in life is to master the art of writing fiction — to expertly create imaginary worlds and witty, insightful ideas. I desperately want to become a great writer, but the process of practicing this craft turned out to be way more difficult than I…

API stands for Application Programming Interface. Basically, it’s something that allows different programs to interact with each other.
For the most part, when we talk about APIs on the web, we mean REST APIs. REST stands for “Representational state transfer”. REST is an underlying architecture, designed with the purpose to make the calls between computers simple.
It works the same way all websites do — the client sends a request to the server, and receives a response. The response is simply some data in JSON format, which makes it easy to use and interpret…
