I'm happy to announce the release of my latest Lynda.com course, Building APIs with LoopBack. This course introduces you to LoopBack and walks you through building APIs as well as a sample application using those APIs. I cover customizations, security, and more. It's near two hours in length and would be a great way to learn the framework. You do not need to be an expert in Node to use LoopBack, so I definitely recommend it. I hope my readers find this useful, and as always, leave me some feedback about the course either at the site or down in the comments below. (As a reminder, I also have a course on Ionic as well!)

Here is the course outline:

  • Introduction
  • Introducing APIs with LoopBack
  • Models
  • Data Sources
  • Security
  • Customizing LoopBack
  • Filtering and Validating Data
  • Demo LoopBack App
  • Conclusion
