The Funkiest API: Episode 3


Join Skyler and Jenn as they continue to build a Web UI showing data from the Funkiest API created in Episode 1

(previous sessions can be found on-demand)

Episode 1

Episode 2


API’s are pretty cool, they allow different apps to communicate with each other. That’s all behind the scenes, but what if you want to display data from an API on a web page for others to see?

Join Skyler and Jenn as they continue their adventures and create a web page to display data from an API. (Which happens to be the Funkiest API created in episode one) Nothing too fancy, but they’ll work through the basic concepts and, with your help, build the “Funkiest Web UI” for their API.


In episode two, Skyler and Jenn created and deployed a 'Hello, world' React app to Azure Static Web Apps. They showed you how to develop a basic React app using hooks and functional components. Then how to fetch data from a CosmosDB database via an HTTP API hosted on Azure Functions and then stored it as client-side state. We will pick up where they left off, so we recommend watching that session in advance of this one.
