As the demand for new APIs increases, API Lifecycle Management helps manage API development from start to finish. In this course, you’ll learn about the phases and benefits of the API Lifecycle Management process, as well as the Producer and Consumer design pattern. You’ll then explore API strategy and planning, API implementation and operation, and API governance and governance models. Next, you’ll move on to examine API Lifecycle Management best practices, including monitoring, analytics, security, and versioning techniques. Finally, you'll see how to design a Swagger REST API, implement a Swagger REST API server, test a Swagger REST API, and implement a Swagger REST API client.
