RESTful API Design

Overview

As the internet has evolved from a collection of static documents to an ecosystem of connected services and data providers it has brought with it the API revolution. APIs serve as the fabric that interlinks data flow on this modern evolution of Internet. They provide access to services that drive all of the interactions that we all take for granted when we do everyday tasks such as set up a calendar event on our laptops and have it instantly appear on our smartphones, wearable devices, and even our home appliances.

In this RESTful API Design course, students will learn to explore, identify, consume and implement REST API resources using common industry standard tools. Students will examine a variety of popular APIs to help understand how and where they are used. Students will also get the opportunity to consume public APIs and implement their own APIs in language of their choice.

The course will also cover API design, caching techniques and securing the API endpoint.

By the end of this 4 day course, you will have a thorough understanding of API, how they work and how to implement them efficiently in your application.
