The traditional approach to software development is often tightly coupled between the server and client sides, leading to limitations on faster parallel development, scalability issues, and difficulties handling multiple clients. With the ever-increasing demand for mobile technologies, maintaining the same database and codebase for all applications can be challenging, and exposing data may not be straightforward.

Thankfully, REST APIs offer a solution to these issues. REST APIs allow for a single codebase on the server side to work with all applications, making it unnecessary to write server-side code more than once, regardless of programming language. This approach simplifies development, making it faster and more efficient. It also enables easy data sharing across applications, which can be especially useful in distributed systems or when working with external partners. By leveraging REST APIs, developers can focus on building the best possible application without worrying about the underlying infrastructure or compatibility issues.

Course Outcome

  • Speeds your project development process.
  • Able to work efficiently in a team.
  • Able to write server-side code for web, mobile, and desktop applications in a single language of your choice.
  • Able to use the same database for all your projects without data redundancy or database duplication.
  • Able to work on any type of application, due to language independency.


  • Knowledge of any programming language with the basics of the database is enough.
  • Working experience in projects is plus.


  • Understanding the basics of REST API
  • A better understanding of database concepts
  • Use open-source APIs like maps, data, images, news, etc.
  • Create your REST API endpoints for your project.
  • Use your own endpoints from multiple projects.
  • Learn to share data publicly through API.

Who can join the rest of the API?

  • Students who have basic programming knowledge (any language)
  • Basic knowledge of the database.
  • Worked on at least one project with the use of the database.

This course is also beneficial for the professionals working in the software field those who:

  • Are working on projects regularly.
  • Develop projects for multiple platforms (Web, Mobile, Desktop) and want to use a single code for all.
  • Have knowledge of one or more programming languages but want to contribute to different platforms.
