The EVE API is an XML interface to the universe of New Eden. With the API, you can access information that you would otherwise be required to dive into the game to get. This information can be used in your own projects to do all sorts of things. Your imagination is the limit.
This documentation is going to be fairly technical. If you don't know what XML is, how to POST via HTTP, and how to read a specification, then writing for the API might not be for you. With that out of the way...

If you are looking for a place to hang out, you can find people who are involved with using the API in the #eve-dev IRC channel on the Coldfront IRC Network (try irc.coldfront.net).
