๐Ÿ‘ What Is An Application?

Liked What Is An Application? | API Evangelist (API Evangelist)

My view of what an application is stems from a decade of studying the least visible, and least tangible aspect of an application, its programming interface. When talking to people about applications, the first question I ask folks is usually, โ€œdo you know what an API isโ€? If someone is API savvy I will move to asking, โ€œwhen it comes to application programming interface (API), who or what is being programmed? Is it the platform? The application? Or, is it the end-user of the applications?โ€ Iโ€™ve spent a decade thinking about this question, playing it over and over in my end, never quite being satisfied with what I find. Honestly, the more I scratch, the more concerned I get, and the more Iโ€™m unsure of exactly what an โ€œapplicationโ€ is, and precisely who are what is actually being programmed.
