As a web developer, you’ve probably heard a lot about APIs and microservices over the last few of years. This Learning Path shows you exactly how to get started with building out your own API, which you can remix and extend to seamlessly integrate with other services.
After a refresher on Node.js, you will take a look at the asynchronous programming model, which is key to understanding why Node.js is a good fit for API development. You will then dive right into building out your example API. You will also learn how to create companion unit tests to make sure everything is set for production. This serves as a great starting point for adaptation and extension for personal projects.
