About this Specialization

This three-course specialization introduces learners to Apigee, Google Cloud's full-lifecycle API management platform. Using a combination of presentations, hands-on labs, and supplemental materials, you will explore the full API lifecycle, and learn how to design, secure, and publish APIs using the Apigee API Platform. You will use your own Apigee organization and build APIs to solve real-world scenarios. Note: We strongly recommend that you take the courses in order. Later lab activities build upon APIs you have implemented during previous labs. This specialization is intended for developers, architects, or engineers responsible for the solutioning, design, implementation, or management of APIs. >>> By enrolling in this specialization, you agree to the Qwiklabs Terms of Service as set out in the FAQ and located at: https://qwiklabs.com/terms_of_service <<<
