API Design Training Overview

This API Design course helps developers, tech leads, architects and testers make more intentional decisions about the design, implementation, and deployment of their Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Not thinking about APIs beyond the implementation code can result in shallow, fragile, and short-lived services. This course fosters practical and useful thinking to help developers produce APIs that have business value for longer periods of time.
