Build APIs with Amazon API Gateway

Requirements

  • An AWS account.
  • Basic understanding of what is an API.
  • Basic understanding of the AWS (Amazon Web Services) Cloud would be advantageous but not mandatory.

Amazon API Gateway is a fully managed service that makes it easy for developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. Without worrying about the underlying infrastructure API developers can just focus on development and deployment of APIs.

 

This is a course that will start with the basics of Amazon API Gateway and as course progresses let you dive deep into all the features of API Gateway to build secure APIs in Amazon API Gateway confidently.

 

Here’s what you’ll learn in this course:

  • What is Amazon API Gateway
  • Different types of APIs in Amazon API Gateway
  • Different types of REST API endpoints
  • API Gateway REST API – Request cycle
  • API Gateway REST API – Response cycle
  • Building REST API from scratch with  real world example
  • Demo of PetStore API
  • Lambda Custom Integration
  • Lambda Proxy Integration
  • More content will be added soon in 2022 !!

 

My aim is to make this course a one stop comprehensive guide for building APIs with API Gateway and will keep on adding more course lessons related to various integrations, REST API types, HTTP API, WebSocket API , Custom Domain Names, Usage Plans, Deployments, Securing APIs with different Authorization schemes, Troubleshooting APIs  and much more with time. So stay tuned for learning and becoming an expert in building APIs with Amazon API Gateway.

You will learn all of the above with no prior knowledge assumed. However,  if you do have  some prior knowledge, you’ll of course be able to quickly jump into the course modules that are most interesting to you.

I would appreciate your valuable feedback to help me making changes or add new content that benefit everyone enrolling to this course.
