Building RESTful APIs with Go

Video description

Create and troubleshoot robust and secure RESTful APIs with Go, Echo, and JWE

About This Video

  • Build and deploy RESTful web services in a production environment
  • Make your API more secure using basic auth and encrypted JSON
  • Secure go applications for deployment with scalability in mind.

In Detail

REST is an architectural style that tackles the challenges of building scalable web services. APIs provide the fabric through which systems interact, and REST has become synonymous with APIs. The depth, breadth, and ease of use of Go, make it a breeze for developers to work with it to build robust Web APIs. This course will teach you to build a RESTful web server. You will learn to add routing and handle requests, thus making your APIs more RESTful. Later, by testing and profiling your code you will ensure it runs correctly and behaves well at scale. Moving on with security, you will learn to log requests and outcomes of API calls and speed up performance using the Echo framework. By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge you need to start building your own enterprise-grade RESTful web services that are production-ready, secure, scalable, and reliable.


The course assumes some experience with the Go programming language, as well as some knowledge of HTTP. RESTful web service concepts, JSON, and some Go language features will be introduced in enough detail so viewers can use them to build RESTful services with Go.
