Anypoint Platform Development: Fundamentals Training

Get hands-on experience of APIs and integrations with the Anypoint Platform Development: Fundamentals training for Mule 3 or Mule 4.

Anypoint Development: Fundamentals – Course Summary

If you’re a developer or an architects in need of hands-on experience of building APIs and integrations, then the Anypoint Platform Development: Fundamentals training is for you.

There are two separate courses for Mule 3 and Mule 4.

This course consists of two sections. The first part involves using Anypoint Platform to discover, consume, design, build, deploy, manage, and govern APIs.

The second part focuses on using Mule and Anypoint Studio to build applications for both API implementations and integrations.

Also benefit from a free voucher for two attempts at the MuleSoft Certified Developer – Integration and API Associate (Mule 3) exam or the MuleSoft Certified Developer – Level 1 (Mule 4) exam.
