  • Basics of RESTful APIs
  • Basics of API Blueprint

APIs are everywhere. I have designed & build many highly scalable SaaS-based applications using RESTful APIs. API Design & Documentation play an important role in any complex mobile or SaaS-base application.

In this course we will learn how to conceptualize the complete notes-management system and write its RESTful API specification using API Blueprint. We will also learn how to convert or render that blueprint into beautiful 3-columns API Documentations.

This course has been created for the people who are:

  • Project Managers
  • Product Managers/Engineering Managers
  • API Designers
  • API Testers
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Students

For their complex product design and implementation of RESTful APIs using api blueprint.

In this course we will see everything from ground level to up (ie. from 0 to 10) including setting up editor and writing the blueprint. We will also learn about advanced features of blueprint like:

  • JSON Schema
  • MSON Schema
  • URI Parameters
  • Attributes
  • Data Structures
  • File inclusion
  • Relation Types
  • API Mock Server
  • Postman Collection

After this course you will be able to break down any real life SaaS-based or mobile apps in to scalable RESTful APIs which can be used anywhere.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for Product Manager who are exploring best way to design complex APIs
  • This course is also targeted for Engineering Managers building complex SaaS products
  • This course is for API Designer, CTOs, Web Developers who are looking to design effective and complex APIs quickly
  • This course is also for technical writers who are looking for easy method to manage complex API docs online
