Course Description

Web APIs provide a solution that enables HTTP-based services to be exposed in a way that makes it easier to integrate functionality with a broad variety of devices, clients, and other businesses. In this course, you'll be introduced to testing, performance improvement, and Web API deployment, beginning with the importance of tests, considerations for writing software tests, methods for writing unit tests for API controllers, and how to create unit tests for filters and handlers. Then you'll discover how to improve application performance, how to enable gzip compression, and how caching improves application performance. Finally, you'll learn how to improve the performance and resiliency of Web APIs by enabling throttling and how to deploy an API to IIS and Azure App Service. This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).
