Brief but to the point. Tells what API developers need to hear ( maybe listen) and gives enough pointers where to refer to the docs. A great starter course for APIGEE journey.

By DAAug 25th 2018

Great general overview of the APIGEE Edge platform. Also covers some basic API design concepts with a very light touch on common practices encouraged by APIGEE.

About the Developing APIs with Google Cloud's Apigee API Platform Specialization

This three-course specialization will introduce you to the many out of box capabilities of the Google Cloud Platform (Apigee) and how to apply them to your APIs to properly implement and secure them. Through a combination of video lectures, hands on labs, and supplemental materials, you'll learn how to design, build, and deploy your API solution using services on the Google Apigee Platform. This specialization is intended for API designers and developers and is considered to be fundamental. We highly recommend this training prior to working on the Google Apigee Platform This specialization will allow you to spin up your own free environment and develop your first set of APIs as the instructor walks you through a specific real world scenario.
