Overview of this book

In the world of web development, leveraging data is the key to developing comprehensive applications, and RESTful APIs help you to achieve this systematically. This book will guide you in designing and developing web services with the power of TypeScript 3 and Node.js. You'll design REST APIs using best practices for request handling, validation, authentication, and authorization. You'll also understand how to enhance the capabilities of your APIs with ODMs, databases, models and views, as well as asynchronous callbacks. This book will guide you in securing your environment by testing your services and initiating test automation with different testing approaches. Furthermore, you'll get to grips with developing secure, testable, and more efficient code, and be able to scale and deploy TypeScript 3 and Node.js-powered RESTful APIs on cloud platforms such as the Google Cloud Platform. Finally, the book will help you explore microservices and give you an overview of what GraphQL can allow you to do. By the end of this book, you will be able to use RESTful web services to create your APIs for mobile and web apps and other platforms.

This book is about hands-on development of TypeScript 3 APIs for beginners, intermediate, and expert-level software developers. The purpose of this book is to increase your practical knowledge by going through practical uses of features of TypeScript 3, OpenAPI design, database communication, Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery practices, and also GraphQL fundamentals.

It is common to start creating APIs without meaning, or APIs that are not extensible at all. This book starts from scratch by looking at how to design and create a complete business capability through an API, and also provide an entire ecosystem that allows the API to keep evolving all the time, thus generating value more quickly.

All of the chapters in this book provide meaningful example applications for the topics covered, enabling you to put the practices demonstrated to use in real-life projects.
