Course Overview
Hello. I'm Peter van Rijn. Welcome to my course on Spring REST. I do have more than 20 years' experience with Java in many roles as a programmer, architect, consultant, teacher, and coach. Spring is by far the most popular Java enterprise framework, and REST is the ubiquitous way of sending data over to it. Especially Spring boot has many libraries to make Spring REST easy and fun not only for sending plain JSON messages, but also for sending error messages and messages with hyperlinks. And to make your code robust there are many testing libraries available. All this will be covered in this course in theory and illustrated with many demos. By the end of this course you will have a solid foundation to write professional Spring REST applications. Before beginning this course you should have some basic knowledge on Java programming. From here you can continue your learning with courses on Spring, especially Spring 5, and Angular and React in combination with the Spring backend. I hope you'll join me on the journey to learn Spring REST at Pluralsight.
