This IBM Self-Paced Virtual Class (SPVC) includes:
- PDF course guide available to attendee during and after course
- Lab environment where students can work through demonstrations and exercises at their own pace
This course teaches the skills that are needed to create, assemble, and test APIs that use DataPower policies in API Connect.
There are no presentations in this course; it contains only hands-on lab exercises. You assemble APIs and test these APIs from the Developer Toolkit on a remote DataPower Gateway Docker image with the prerequisite software installed.
Student workstations for this course require connectivity to the internet. Students download the DataPower Gateway onto the course image during the exercises as a Docker image.
