With RESTful APIs adopted by such players as Amazon, Google, Twitter and LinkedIn, consolidating your experience and knowledge at the leading edge of REST and Microservices is an important step in upskilling your authority with clean microservices ecosystems. This three-day RESTful Microservices course acts as a great refresher or foundational resource for designing and building microservices with RESTful APIs.
Join Jim Webber, Chief Scientist with Neo Technology, as he guides your through examples in code, live demos, design challenges, and collaborative discussions to help mature your thinking on what makes an efficient microservices ecosystem.
- Learn how to effectively use REST APIs for your microservices ecosystems -
Who you will be sitting next to
Technologists of any stripe who are comfortable with a modern programming language and already familiar with building microservices.
