RESTful services are a key component of Full Stack Development. In this 13-video course, you will discover how to implement a working RESTful API (application programming interface) by using Python and the Flask framework. This is an essential skill to acquire on the journey from being an enterprise developer to a full stack developer. Learners will examine best practices for RESTful services, and some of their related challenges. Then take a look at the valuable art of identifying activities and breaking them down into steps for designing RESTful APIs; and explore some of the tools used to extend the features of RESTful APIs. Next, learn how to implement the tools to sanitize data for APIs by implementing the GET, POST, PUT, PATCH, and DELETE handlers for an API endpoint. This leads on to learning how to test each endpoint by using Pytest. To conclude the course, complete an exercise involving the building of a RESTful service and testing its endpoint and methods.
