Get an overview of what we'll be doing in "Streaming Data on the Net."
[MUSIC] 0:00 Now that we know how to use streams and serialization, 0:04 we can use our new knowledge to send and receive data on the Internet. 0:07 This is where serialization is especially helpful, 0:12 because we can take our objects, package them up, and send them to somewhere else. 0:15 We can also ask for the data on rapid by deserializing and 0:19 then use it in our program. 0:23 There are lots of APIs available on the web for us to play around with. 0:24 In this series of videos, 0:29 we'll be using a couple of web APIs from Microsoft's Cognitive Services. 0:31 Most web APIs these days require some kind of authentication to prevent people from 0:36 firing off millions of requests and bogging down their servers. 0:40 So, to follow along, you'll need to sign up for 0:44 a free Microsoft account if you haven't already. 0:46 Then we'll need to get API keys for use with our web requests. 0:49 Instructions to do this are included in the notes. 0:53
