    I understood the principle idea of APIs. The example with water pipe was great! Never thought about APIs that way, but now I am very clear about how it works. Yay!

    What could we have done better?
    On my way home I was thinking about a Movie vs Play regarding the interpretation process and came to the conclusion that probably if the actors, the director, the words, the dresses, the music, etc. are the same in the Play – it still will be a translation (meaning programming). But if it is the same Story but performed the different way (and no matter whether it is a Movie or a Play) it will be interpretation (meaning scripting). For example:
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1645131/?ref_=nv_sr_1 and
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063518/?ref_=nv_sr_2 and
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117509/?ref_=nv_sr_3
    They all are Romeo and Juliette but they all are interpretation of the same story. So both a Movie and a Play can be interpretation (different directors, different vision) and translation (the same director, the same everything).
