Course Overview

Backend applications do the heavy lifting of calculations, data storage, and integrating data from multiple sources, and enable many clients to connect to it simultaneously. This course, Developer Toolkit #2, provides a guide to the components of the backend, and how a client application connects to it.

It deals in depth with:
• Designing and developing a backend application;
• Exposing data to client applications as an API;
• Best practice in database design;
• Database queries and joins;
• Security of data in motion and at rest;
• Connecting applications end-to-end, from frontend to backend and database.
