RESTful web APIs allow developers to create unprecedented applications by leveraging big data on the Internet. Since JavaScript is the language of the web, building APIs using Node.js (a JavaScript framework) provides a seamless development experience on both the front end and the back end.

This Node.js course gives you an overview of a RESTful API and the logical steps of creating one. It explores three different APIs, focusing on their similarities and differences and how to effectively implement one. Instructor Saleh Hamadeh starts off by defining APIs, showing how they can be built on top of HTTP and listing the properties that make an API RESTful. Learn how to develop Twitter Notes, a sample web application that lets users leave notes for their Twitter friends. Use Twitter’s API to implement a login flow and then design a web API. Additionally, get a closer look at several other real-world APIs, and learn some best practices to keep APIs secure, maintainable, and efficient.
