API Gateway is a fully managed service by Amazon that makes it easy for developers to create, publish, maintain and monitor their APIs at any scale without having to worry about versioning, authorizations, throttling and other administrative tasks. In this course, authored by Tehreem Siddiqui and narrated by Adam Hawkins, you will learn how to create and deploy REST API through API Gateway to expose HTTP endpoints, AWS Lambda functions and other AWS services.


Hello, and welcome to the conclusion of the API Gateway course. Let's go over what we covered in the course. We touched on the HTTP fundamentals and how that relates to REST, or representational state transfer APIs. We leveraged that knowledge to build various APIs using the AWS API gateway.

We built service applications using Lambda, and also exposed our S3 account in via the API gateway. We also discussed how to secure our APIs using IAM authorization and debug them with Cloudwatch. Finally, we saw how to export swagger definitions and extensions for use with the external tool chains.

This just touches the surface though. There are many more things the API gateway can do with the request response integrations Lambda, caching and SDK generation to name a few. I suggest you investigate these and see how you can use the API gateway in your stack. Also remember that you can reach me and other instructors on the Cloud Academy community forum. Anyways, that's all from me. Good luck out there, and happy shipping.
