Developing APIs with Google Cloud's Apigee API Platform Specialization
Develop APIs with the Apigee API Platform. Learn how to design, build, secure, deploy, and manage API solutions using Apigee, Google Cloud's full-lifecycle API management solution
About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
This specialization incorporates hands-on labs using our Qwiklabs platform.
You will create your own Apigee evaluation organization, and build APIs to complete the labs. The APIs you build in your evaluation organization will remain available between labs and after the class.
Your evaluation organization will be removed after 60 days. The labs are built upon each other, but each lab contains a solution to the previous lab which can be used if necessary.
