    About this course

    This course will teach you how to build a professional API platform using pure Flask, without any supplemental libraries, so that students can learn the fundamentals of RESTful API design.

    In today’s world, dominated by gorgeous JavaScript user interfaces and mobile applications, the ability to build a scalable and well architected API is key to be able to supplement those applications and ensure that clients and servers communicate with the proper interfaces.

    The course covers the basic concepts of the RESTful API pattern and then goes into detail and step by step building an API platform that will cover the six constraints of the architecture. Students will learn the industry-standard and will follow best practices for API architectures.

    At the end of the course students will be able to design, architect and build their own RESTful API platforms, and with the deep understanding of the laws governing APIs, can go ahead and try out the API libraries available for Python and Flask, knowing the fundamentals and the advantages of using them.

    If you already know the basics of Flask and you are interested in how to design, architect and build an API platform, this is the course for you.

    The course is divided in 2 sections:

    • Introduction which covers all the concepts necessary to understand what is a RESTful API and its six constraints

    • A step by step explanation building a Pet Store API that will include an authentication layer, a Store endpoint and a Pet endpoint as well as search functionalities

    The course has more than 5 hours of video tutorials as well as the source code at the end of each section, so that you can follow along with the coding process.

    The course can take anywhere from 3 to 10 days to complete based on how much material the student completes daily.

    Additionally we’re constantly updating the course, adding contents thanks to the feedback of our students.
