Who should take this course?
This introductory course is for anyone involved in an Anypoint Platform project who wants to get hands-on experience learning about the platform and how to use it to discover, consume, design, build, deploy, manage, and govern APIs — all without writing any code. This course is not for developers and architects who are going to take the
course, which includes this content and more. Anypoint Platform Development: Fundamentals
Note: A self-paced version of this course is also available.
A basic understanding of data formats such as XML and JSON
A basic understanding of typical integration technologies such as HTTP, REST, and SOAP
When you complete this course, you will be able to:
Describe the benefits of application networks and API-led connectivity.
Use Anypoint Exchange as a central repository for the discovery and reuse of assets.
Use API Designer to define APIs with RAML and make them discoverable by adding them to Exchange.
Use Anypoint Studio to build APIs that connect to databases and transform data with DataWeave.
Deploy API implementations to CloudHub.
Use API Manager to create and deploy API proxies that govern access to APIs.
