Anatomy of a Tin Can API Statement

We get a lot of questions about how Tin Can API statements should be structured and used, so our very own Brian Miller has basically been writing a book about the anatomy of a Tin Can statement. It includes a lot of what you’ll need to know in order to use Tin Can the right way. It’s been a series of blog posts that we’ve actually turned into an e-book, which you can download for free right here.

We’ve broken down the Tin Can statement into each of its parts, and included a lot of “best practices” information along the way.

This is a lot of information, so take your time. And yes, we actually do intend to create a downloadable e-book out of this series once it’s complete.
