We have written up how different businesses and organizations use ZipCodeAPI. Here’s a story about how some enterprising students at Nashville Software School (NSS) used ZipCodeAPI. NSS offers bootcamps that prepare adults for careers in software development, UI/UX design, and data science.
Shane Wilson, a student at NSS, contacted us about a group project he was part of. He wanted to use ZipCodeAPI in conjunction with the Weatherbit API. Here’s what Shane had to say about using ZipCodeAPI:
For our project I needed to get current weather conditions by saving zip codes to a database and using those zip codes to hit up Weatherbit. The thing I didn’t like was that Weatherbit, for most cities, doesn’t return an ACTUAL city name. It returns the county, so my weather info would say ‘county name, state’ and I hated that.I used your api by passing in the same zip code to get the ACTUAL city name to populate my weather info.
