In this chapter, we covered a lot of ground relating to Magento API's. There is much more left to be said, but the steps outlined here should be enough to get us started even with more advanced API usage. We started the chapter with learning about types of users and the authentication methods supported. Strong emphasis was placed on making several types of API calls, like console cURL, PHP cURL, PHP SoapClient, and console cURL SOAP. This was to encourage developers to understand the inner workings of API calls more deeply than just using high-level libraries.
Throughout the next chapter, we will look into some of the major sections of Magento.
