What you will learn:

  • Get a high level understanding of APIs and how to approach API design and ensure industry best practices are followed
  • Get an overview of the API proxy
  • Review policies which play a key role on how your API functions
  • Review topics such as fault rules, logging, mediation and debugging
  • Understanding of API security and why it's important.
  • Design a fully working and secure API to be used as reference for all future builds!

Pre-requisites

Lab exercises will be included as part of this path. Before getting started, please ensure you have the following completed:

  • Apigee Edge developer account. See docs for more details on how to setup your account.
  • Node.js installed on your local machine (version 6.x or later). This will also install node's package manage npm.
  • Google Cloud Platform account. Please register and sign in to your GCP console.
  • Java SDK >= 8
  • Maven 3.x Note: Majority of the labs will be in the "API Development" and "API Security" courses.

Beginner

This course gives you an introductory look at the Apigee API Platform and API Design in general. We'll cover topics such as how to properly navigate through the Apigee Edge UI as well as how to approach API design and ensure industry best practices are followed. We'll also go over the Apigee Technology Stack to ensure a full understanding of all the platform components.
