APIs are changing the way that developers build their applications, from simple websites and mobile apps to Internet of Things applications. At the same time, many developers are moving away from traditional monolithic application architectures to creating smaller microservices, each with its own API. Building microservices has benefits like increased speed to market, reduced potential for errors when deploying updates, and greater flexibility in application design. In this session, we’ll talk about how you can get started building API-based microservices by using Amazon API Gateway. We’ll cover API Gateway’s core features, including how it can help you create standardized APIs and its authentication and authorization features. By the end, you’ll have a foundation for how you can build public or private APIs for backends running on server-based or container-based applications and serverless applications.
