Manipulating data is the core of almost every application. One popular approach to manipulating data is using a REST API to perform create, read, update, and delete actions on data. In this course, Building CRUD Actions in a JavaScript REST API, you’ll learn to manipulate data with a JavaScript REST API. First, you’ll explore how to create the basic API. Next, you’ll discover how to filter results via the API. Finally, you’ll learn how to call the API from the client. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of REST APIs needed to manipulate data with a JavaScript REST API.

Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Nate Taylor, and welcome to my course, Building CRUD Actions in a JavaScript REST API. I'm a solution architect at Aviture in Omaha, Nebraska. Both REST and JavaScript have taken the world by storm. And while there's a lot of really cool things you can do with both, one of the most helpful applications you can write is a CRUD application. In this course, we're going to look at how to build a CRUD application using JavaScript on both the server and client side. Some of the major topics we'll cover include what is CRUD and how does it relate to REST? How can I implement a basic REST API with JavaScript? How can I search using a RESTful API? And how can an API help a client validate its data? By the end of this course, you'll be able to implement each of the four major CRUD actions with both an API and a client using nothing but JavaScript. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic JavaScript syntax, as well as a basic understanding of the difference between a client and a server. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about JavaScript, REST, and CRUD with the Building CRUD Actions in a JavaScript REST API course at Pluralsight.
