Course Overview
Hi everyone, welcome to my course, Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services: Bing Image Search API. I'm a software developer and data capturer and business automation specialist. The Bing Image Search API enables you as a developer to integrate Bing's image search capabilities into your applications. By sending user queries with the API, you get and display relevant high quality images similar to Bing.com /images. The Bing Image Search API is essentially a RESTful web service, making it easy to call from any programming language that can make HTTP requests and parse JSON responses, such as C#, by returning all images that are relevant to the query search. By using this API, it is also possible to get the web's trending images, and also animated GIFs for a specific search term. Some of the major topics that we will cover include image search pillars, process and view responses, filter images and get image insights, getting animated GIFs, trending images from the web, and finally, watching these technologies and principles getting applied by creating our own SDK. By the end of this course, you'll know the basics of working with the Bing Image Search API and be able to write code that uses it to search for very cool images. Before beginning this course, you should have some good knowledge of C#, as well as being able to find your way around the latest version of Visual Studio. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn the ins and outs of the Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services Bing Image Search API course at Pluralsight.
