Course Demo
updated Nov. 18, 2019

In this course you'll learn how to interact with a REST API from Food2Fork.com recipesapi.herokuapp.com. The app will retrieve information from the website and display it in various view types.

The app used to retrieve the data from Food2Fork.com, but that website has been shutdown. A codingwithmitch.com community member stripped the data and published to the Heroku app listed above. Special thanks to Simran doing this!

NOTE: This course is meant to serve as an introduction to the Local Database Caching Course with MVVM, Retrofit and Room. It's strongly suggested that you watch that course after this one.
