General Discussion

Display profile data from any website to my personal website.

I came across a website called http://degreed.com

When you make an account you are able to display badges you've earned from learning sites like Treehouse, Codecademy, Khan Academy, etc.

I'd like to make a learning webpage on my personal website that automatically posts badges I've earned on different sites.

How are they doing this?

They pull the data via an API, Treehouse and Code School provide data via JSON.

You can use this JQuery plugin to get Treehouse & Code School data.
