I don't know how to do this mission

Mission: CRUD ROOKIE
Task: Add Object With API

Please, describe your problem here.

I can’t figure out what I need to do.
Can anybody help me?
Do I need to setup a client side environement and if yes, how?

Please respond ASAP

Hi Jasper,

I assume the provided instructions were not clear.

You can add an object using any supported programming language or using the REST API.

Mark

Sorry but I am new to this platform and don’t understand you.
Where do I need to put this information?
Like my app ID and API keys?

I want to learn this platform and make some apps!

Regards

Jasper

Do you have any programming experience?
Any familiarity with any of the following languages:
Java
Swift
Objective-C
JavaScript
C#
?

I am still learning C#

And I can do some JavaScript too.

The example provided in the instructions for the task is in JavaScript. To configure your client-side development environment, see the instructions in the documentation:
https://backendless.com/docs/js/setup.html

So I downloaded npm and used this command, “npm i backendless”.
I dowloaded the backendless.js file from this link “https://api.backendless.com/sdk/js/latest/backendless.js” and replaced my app ID and JavaScript API key in the file.
What should I do now?

Jasper

Now you need to write a program that makes an API call. However, I recommend writing something that prints “Hello World” to make sure you can actually run it an executable script. For help with hello world, consider googling, using stack overflow, etc.

Good luck!
