Today we'll talk about the use of a web API (Application Programming Interface), with which we'll communicate within our application. This interface allows programmers to use already programmed solutions and then integrate them into their programs. Programmers then use already defined components. We can imagine an API as a waiter who ensures communication between a customer and a chef.
In this case, we'll create a simple WPF application that will show us a well-known xkcd comics among programmers. We'll also add the ability to detect sunset and sunrise times to try calling more various APIs.

The code for the first window named
MainWindow will look like
