Anypoint Platform Development: Fundamentals (Mule 4)

Anypoint Platform Development: Fundamentals (Mule 4)

Summary

This instructor-led course is for developers and architects who want to get hands-on experience using Anypoint Platform to build APIs and integrations. In the first part, students use Anypoint Platform to discover, consume, design, build, deploy, manage, and govern APIs. In the second and third parts, students focus on using Mule and Anypoint Studio to build applications for use as API implementations and integrations.

The course includes a voucher to take the MuleSoft Certified Developer - Level 1 (Mule 4) exam.

A downloadable data sheet for the course can be found here.
