This course is the first of three courses in the Developing APIs for Google Cloud's Apigee API Platform series. This course introduces you to API design and the fundamentals of the Apigee platform. In this course, you learn how to design APIs, and how to use OpenAPI specifications to document them. You learn about the API lifecycle, and how the Apigee API platform helps you manage all aspects of the lifecycle. You learn about how APIs can be designed using API proxies, and how APIs are packaged as products to be used by app developers. This course utilizes hands-on labs that model an API development process that can be used for real-world projects on Google Cloud's Apigee API platform.
Course Preview [Autogenerated] Yeah. Welcome to API Design and Fundamentals. The first course in developing a piece with Google Cloud's Apogee API platform. This course will introduce you to Apogee and its features. You will learn about the API development lifecycle. You will also learn about recipes and what to consider when designing them. We will discuss app first development and how open API specifications can be used to define. An API interface will also discuss the main sections of an apogee API proxy, the proxy endpoint Targeting point right Rules and flows. You will learn how these are used when you create your APIs. You will also learn about the logic and modules that are used to build your proxies within proxy flows, conditions, variables and policies. We'll learn about API products, how they are used to package Europeans for use by APP developers and see an example of how API products might evolve in real world scenario. During this course, you will explore these topics in a series of labs in which you build and test API proxies. You will build a retail API proxy that calls a back end service and you will protect your proxy so that it can only be called by an app that is registered to use. The API labs will also explore rejecting insecure traffic for your apps, providing different levels of service to different applications and tips and tricks while using the apogee proxy trace tool.
