Java Weather App in Need of Tests

Instructions for getting API keys are not in the teacher's notes

In the video you said that there was instructions for getting the three API keys we needed for this course in the teacher's notes, but I looked and there are no instructions in the teacher's notes for this video.

Can anyone tell me where to find API keys for the Weather API, Google Geocoding API and Google Places API?

In the Teacher's Notes, there's a link to a README on GitHub with all the info: https://github.com/treehouse-projects/spring-unit-test-weather#readme

Hope this helps

forecast.io doesn't exist anymore and the link points to darksky.net

Will darksky's api work just the same?

I haven't done the Spring Unit Testing course but I would assume so, yes. It looks like Forecast.io changed their name to Dark Sky in 2016: https://status.darksky.net/2016/09/20/forecast-api-is-now-dark-sky-api.html. Treeehouse uses the Dark Sky API for the Stormy weather app project on the Beginning Android track. They probably just haven't updated that README for the Spring course.
