Course Suggestion: Social APIs
I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to pull all of my latest social media content together, and display everything on a “News” page on my site. There are a ton of Stack questions, hard to follow documentation, and super out dated tutorials online - all of which really haven’t helped me figure this out. I would love to see you guys put together a course on using third-party social APIs in either PHP or JS. Including oAuth, and how to manage some of the more unique requirements of each platform. I would love something like “Build a news feed with Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram APIs.” I know you guys have a ton of content, but I didn’t see anything like this, and I think a lot of students would really benefit from the info. Thanks!

Thanks for this post. If you can email us (email@example.com) with the content suggestion, we can ensure that some additional eyes will see it. No promises of course, but it's a start!
I agree with you. We would benefit from a course that covers OAuth 2.0. I would search for prebuilt frameworks that do the authorization for you. You just input your own keys.
