    Book Description: 

    Bees are transforming the business world at an ever-increasing pace. Gain the essential skills needed to rapidly design, build, and deploy quality web APIs that are robust, reliable, and resilient. Go from initial design through prototyping and deployment to deploying mission-critical APIs for your organization. Test, secure and deploy your API securely and avoid the “release to production” panic. Tackle almost any API challenge with over a dozen open source utilities and common programming models that you can apply right away. Good API design means starting with API-First (understanding who uses the API and what they want to do with it) and applying basic design skills to meet customer needs while solving business-critical problems. Use the Sketch-Design-Build method to quickly and easily build reliable and scalable web APIs without major risk for daily business operations.

    Create clear sequence diagrams, precise specifications, and machine-readable API descriptions, all checked, tested, and ready to turn into fully functional NodeJS code. Build reliable test collections with Postman and implement adequate identity and access control security with AuthO, at no additional cost or risk to your business. Implement all of this on Heroku using a continuous delivery approach that delivers well-tested and secure code to your public servers, ready for use by internal and external developers.

    From design to code to test to deployment, unlock hidden business value and release stable and scalable web APIs that meet customer needs and solve important business problems in a consistent and reliable manner.
