- [Bear] Are you an experienced RESTful API developer? If not, great, this course is for you. If you are, great, this course is for you. Either way, this course can show you how to create a RESTful API that returns hard coded data, data from another server, or something from the execution of code. This is possible through Amazon Web Services, or AWS, using the API Gateway. And it's just that, a gateway. It lets you take RESTful API requests and pass them on to something else.
We'll look at returning data from queries to other servers, so if there's an API you wanna wrap, you can do that. We'll also look at calling code to execute and return data, but you don't have to have a web developer or server admin to do it. AWS Lambda provides example code and runs your function when needed, so there's no server instance to worry about. In this course, we'll look at creating APIs with the API Gateway. We'll also use it to generate code to hit our APIs from a client. In this case, we'll use an iOS app as an example.
I'm Bear Cahill, a freelance mobile app developer. I need RESTful JSON APIs for many of the apps I work on. API Gateway makes it clean and easy, and allows me to create them for myself. Let's get started, and look at the powerful potential of AWS's API Gateway.
