In today’s digital-driven world, applications or apps have become fundamental to our society. They have greatly influenced our way of life, where we work, how we do business, how we provide services and also how we communicate. One of the key needs of these applications is to communicate and integrate with a range of other applications and systems to perform their essential functions. This is where the APIs (Application Programming Interface) and API testing come into play. APIs are vital tools by which two different programs can communicate. Without APIs, the digital interactions we enjoy every day with our computers, smartphones, TVs, and other devices, would not be possible. APIs allow faster innovation and easy monetisation, their importance in all organisations is also increasing. This course starts at the beginner's level from the definition of API, client-server architecture, web services and other fundamentals that will help you understand the working and testing of API.

A client as we know can mean someone, we do business with. Do you know client means something entirely different in computing? Discover what "client" means and how it can perform different operations on a result residing in a server. Do you know that apart from reading data we can manipulate them? You will learn how a client can make that happen and also the importance of these manipulations. Upon that, you will discover the operations known as CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) a client can perform and apply to a result residing in a server.
