Design APIs

In this masterclass, based on the book "Design and Build Great Web APIs" from Pragmatic Publishers, we'll start with the basics of simple, elegant API design. Just like good UI ensure quality apps, good APIs make it easy to build and maintain top-notch APIs. We'll explore the power of the API-First approach and then we'll learn the Unified API Design Process of Model, Design, and Describe. Along the way we'll write API Stories, learn to design APIs that match the current need and support future changes with stability, and learn to describe API designs using the ALPS format that supports implementation in multiple API styles including REST, CRUD, gRPC, AsyncAPI, and GraphQL.
