This course teaches you how to create, publish, and secure APIs with IBM API Connect V5.0.8. You learn how to use the Developer Toolkit to define an API interface according to the OpenAPI specification. You assemble message processing policies in the API Designer web application and define client authorization schemes, such as OAuth 2.0, in the API definition. You build a Node.js API application with the LoopBack framework. You also package, stage, and publish an API with product and plan.
