Web Services for the Go Developer

GraphQL and REST API Development for Golang Developers

In this course, you'll learn how to design and develop web services to be consumed by HTTP requests as well as web services to be queried by GraphQL, two common methodologies in modern web application development, using the Go programming language (Golang) and various frameworks.

Upon completion of the provided material, developers will have familiarity with creating RESTful APIs that allow data creation, retrieval, updating, and deletion (CRUD) operations against a datasource, as well as creating GraphQL APIs that allow for the querying of API data. Throughout the content, important topics such as data validation, data security, authentication, and authorization will be explored.
