Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I was wondering how to learn to use Stack Exchange API? I know how to program with APIs in my familiar languages, to write html webpages, and to remote control with servers via ssh. But can you tell me what some basic knowledge is needed in order to understand what Stack Exchange API is for and how to use it?
