About this book

In the world of web development, leveraging data is the key to developing comprehensive applications, and RESTful APIs help you to achieve this systematically. This book will guide you in designing and developing web services with the power of TypeScript 3 and Node.js. You'll design REST APIs using best practices for request handling, validation, authentication, and authorization. You'll also understand how to enhance the capabilities of your APIs with ODMs, databases, models and views, as well as asynchronous callbacks. This book will guide you in securing your environment by testing your services and initiating test automation with different testing approaches. Furthermore, you'll get to grips with developing secure, testable, and more efficient code, and be able to scale and deploy TypeScript 3 and Node.js-powered RESTful APIs on cloud platforms such as the Google Cloud Platform. Finally, the book will help you explore microservices and give you an overview of what GraphQL can allow you to do.

By the end of this book, you will be able to use RESTful web services to create your APIs for mobile and web apps and other platforms.

Really bad experience, the site is very unstable, I had to make several attempts to finally being able to pay, always getting errors from the back end. I couldn't pay for 3 days, using two different credit cards, I could complete the purchase at the 4th day. Additionally, there is no support at all in this cases, the form for it, had errors too when I tried to send (It never worked anyway). Very bad experience, very unstable site, I hope I don't need to purchase in this site again.
