So i have been working with HTML and CSS for a couple years now and I think I'm ready to move on to the next big thing. Front end design is not so hard for me but I'm lost when it comes to BACK-ENDS. So a few question if you will.
1. An API is a system of calls to request resources from the server?
2. If so, does it use a flat file style of database or can it exchange data with MYSQL?
3. Should i learn an API framework first or should i learn it from the ground up and make my own?
I learned HTML from seeing complete sites source code and noticing how it all went together in Firefox Development Tools Console. Maybe someone can show me a complete APIthat i can put requests in javascipt. I want to see how it all comes together, im not that firmillar with post get .
Is anyone have any experience with REST API? Would this be a good starting point?
I was hoping maybe some of you can steer me in the right direction with this.
