Python API Development - Comprehensive Course for Beginners (New fcc course)

Hi guys! An amazing new course has just been posted on freeCodeCamp. 19 hours of course, what madness!

Learn Python API development in one of the most comprehensive courses ever on the topic. You will build a full-fledged API in Python using FastAPI. You will learn the fundamentals of API design including routes, serialization/deserialization, schema validation, and models. You will also learn about SQL, testing with pytest, and how to build out a CI/CD pipeline using GitHub actions.

You can add this course to the free Uolia app to record your progress in the course and avoid forgetting how far you have come, as well as being able to add bookmarks, notes and ToDos.
