System integrations using API calls, automation processes and pushing data to databases are essential for companies and organizations to become competitive in today's digital market.
Many companies are looking for experienced developers, and engineers to be able to make systems talk to each other. Many times low code options are available using services like Zapier and Automate.io but still a good understanding of how the systems work and what is required to complete the integration and handle errors are of most importance.
Popular integrations include processes to automate record creation captured from a Lead form. Automations that send SMS notifications and reminders also triggers to create child records in CRM systems.
One way to jump start your API skills is to sign up for an online course that your interest in these new technologies Udemy has a huge catalog of well designed courses for all levels from beginner to experience and even advance programming skills.
