Anypoint Platform Development: Fundamentals (Mule 4)

Anypoint Platform Development: Fundamentals (Mule 4)


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 discover, consume, design, build, deploy, manage, and govern APIs. In the second part, students focus on using Mule and Anypoint Studio to build applications for use as API implementations and/or integrations.

The course includes a voucher to take a new MuleSoft Certified Developer exam for Mule 4 to be released later this year.

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