Description

Hi and welcome to Building Apps with Third Party API Integrations

In this course, you’re going to learn how to quickly build a web app that interfaces with third-party services like Behance and Sendgrid in a safe and scalable way.

My name is Mike Solomon, and I’m the CEO of Meeshkan Machine Learning, where we use tons of 3rd party integrations in our award-winning app.

At the end of this course, you will be able to develop bug-free apps blazingly fast using NextJs, Typescript and  and deploy them with confidence to the web, to Slack, or if you're a React Native developer, to the App Store or Google Play.

In the first course, we will explore why third party integrations are so important in the modern app-building landscape.  In the second course, we will set up our IDE, download all of the required dependencies, and survey the services we'll be integrating with.  Then, we will build a skeleton web app in record time thanks to awesome tools like mongo-mock and unmock.

The ideal student for this course is a professional developer or hobbyist that wants to use popular APIs like Facebook or Stripe.  This can be quite challenging because of the lack of control that comes with using 3rd party APIs.  We’re going to help you overcome those challenges, fast, and get you on the path towards building great apps.

Thanks a lot for your interest and I hope you sign up for this free course!
