Learn the REST API Concepts, Design best practices, Security practices, Swagger 2.0/OAI, Hands on API Management Course is divided into 6 sections: 1. Setting the stage Lectures in this section will provide the outline of the course, discuss a case study (ACME Travel) that will be used as an example through the course, provide a list of tools used in the course. 2. REST API Concepts Lectures in this section will cover the foundational concepts such as the evolution of RESTful API and the 6 architectural constraints. 3. Designing the REST API Focus in this section is on best practices for designing the REST API. The approach taken in this section is to show how some of the popular API providers (E.g., Twitter, Facebook, Twilio …) have designed their REST API. Some of the RESTful design aspect covered in this section are: Resources, CRUD implementation Error Handling, HTTP status codes Change management & Versioning Pagination, Partial responses To demonstrate the implementation aspects, a set of NodeJS based API is also implemented for a fictitious enterprise ACME Travels. 4. Securing the REST API Commonly used BasicAuth standard is not the best way to implement API security. In this section student will learn the commonly adopted Authentication and Authorization schemes used for REST API Tokens (Jason Web Tokens or JWT) Key/Secret OAuth 2.0 (Using Spotify implementation as a reference) When an API is exposed by an enterprise to the public internet, it poses a risk to the enterprise as hackers may use the vulnerabilities in the API to launch attacks against the enterprise. There are multiple types of such Functional attacks that the API provider must consider. You will learn about the common attacks and the best practices for protecting the API. 5. Swagger 2.0 / Open API Initiative specifications This section will begin with the description of Collaborative specifications development process & benefits of adopting contract first approach. Students will learn Swagger 2.0 specification standard How to create REST API specifications in YAML format Tools options for Swagger specs editing Benefits of Swagger 2.0 Demonstration of how specifications are leveraged by common platforms such as Apigee, Mulesoft & IBM API Connect As part of the lectures, a complete specification will be created for ACME Vacations. At the end of this section student will be able to write Swagger/OAI specifications for their own API. 6. API Management API management is the process of publishing, documenting and overseeing application programming interfaces (APIs) in a secure, scalable environment. Lectures in this section cover the details of the following activities that an API provider carry out within the scope of API management. Lifecycle management Developer productivity Developer portal Security Traffic management Analytics Productization Monetization (API Economy) APIgee, IBM API Connect & Mulesoft platforms will be used for demonstrating the various API management aspects discussed in the lectures. Students are encouraged to try out these platforms on their own to get a good feel of what API management platforms bring to table. The three platforms offer a free trial version that can be used for testing. + Table of Contents Setting the stage 1 Introduction to the Author and the Course 2 Summary decks download link for the course 3 ACME Travels – Case study 4 Tools for Design_ Development_Testing and Management or REST API 5 Crash course on MongoLabs Evolution of RESTful services 6 What is an API 7 Evolution of REST_JSON API 8 Introduction to RESTful API 9 Private_ Public and Partner API REST API Architectural Constraints 10 Introduction to REST Architecture Constraints 11 REST API Architectural Constraint – Client Server 12 REST API Architectural Constraint – Uniform Interface 13 REST API Architectural Constraint – Statelessness 14 REST API Architectural Constraint – Caching 15 REST API Architectural Constraint – Layered System 16 REST API Architectural Constraint – Code On Demand 17 Richardson Maturity Model for REST API Desigining REST API 18 API Value Chain 19 Practices for Resource Names_ Actions & Associations 20 Implementing REST API CRUD operations 21 Walkthrough_ Creating a Vacations API in Node JS 22 REST API Error Handling Practices 23 Walkthrough_ Implementation of error handling for POST API 24 Handling changes to API 25 Versioning the API 26 API Caching (1 of 2) Concepts & Design decisions 27 API Caching (2 of 2) Cache Control Directive 28 Demo – API Caching using Cache-Control Directives 29 Building support for Partial Responses 30 Building support for Pagination REST API Security 31 REST API Security – Introduction 32 Securing API with Basic Authentication 33 Securing API with Tokens & JWT 34 Securing API with API Key & Secret 35 API Authorization using OAuth2_0 36 API Security – Functional Attack REST API Specifications using Swagger 2_0 _ OAI 37 Requirements Analysis Process & Intro to REST Specifications 38 Swagger_OAI Specifications Walkthrough 39 Swagger_OAI Specifications_ Part 1 of 3 40 Swagger_OAI Specifications_ Part 2 of 3 41 Swagger_OAI Specifications_ Part 3 of 3 API Management 42 Introduction to API Management 43 API Lifecycle & Developer Productivity 44 API Developer Portal 45 API Security Management 46 API Traffic Management 47 API Analytics 48 API Product and API Monetization Good Bye & All the Best 49 Good bye
