Where else can I code in api?

I have finished an api course and I would like to use the knowledge but I dont know where I can code where it interacts with the internet and websites. Thanks also what scripting language would you recommend PHP, Python, or Ruby. I want to output the api information in a website by using a scripting language.

Take a look at http://www.programmableweb.com/apis/directory

There are thousands of apis that you can code with. They may not all have client libraries however, so I would suggest sticking with the more popular ones. Google has a lot of apis you can play with, and I would suggest typing in any service you can think of an puttng 'api' after it eg search 'facebook api' 'foursquare api' 'linked in api' etc

Personally I would recommend ruby as a language, but I'd go with whatever you are most familiar with.

Good luck!

Hey man Thanks. I am learning ruby. I know that there are tons of Api's, however I dont know where to code them. For example if im using a twitter api, where would I code for it to respond to the twitter server and bring back info? I know the commands because ive used them in codecadamy. I just cant figure out where to use them outside codecadamy.
