An API Gateway is an essential component in microservice architecture. This course is useful for IT architects, DevOps engineers, CTOs and security experts willing to understand how to use Kong to create and expose APIs. Even if you are not already familiar with Kong, it will only take a few minutes to create your first API.
This course consists of three lessons:
* Installing the code examples
* Getting started with Kong
* API security
Upon completion of this course you will be ready to use Kong for load balancing, to write plugins with Lua, and to deploy Kong in a multi-region environment. You will find details on all of these topics in the Bleeding Edge Press companion book, Kong: Becoming a King of API Gateways.
