Data-Driven Development with External APIs

Want to build apps that can access databases, aggregate information and display them to the user? Then you need to learn how to work with Application Programming Interfaces (or APIs). Learn what they are and how to implement them as you build an app that provides the user with information about upcoming fireworks displays in Queensland, that is searchable by suburb, time, and features a sleek and intuitive UI.

You will learn how to: 

  • Connect to an API (one of the QLD Government Data Sets)
  • Test in Postman – an API development environment
  • Import the data into Unity
  • Use Unity’s UI system to create a dynamic and responsive app
  • Work with UI aspects and components (such as anchoring, positioning, layout groups and more)
  • Work with render textures to display particle effects on top of the UI

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.



With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.



I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.



The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.

Basic experience in Unity and C#.
