Building Python Web APIs with FastAPI
Building Python Web APIs with FastAPI

RESTful web services are commonly used to create APIs for web-based applications owing to their light weight and high scalability. This book will show you how FastAPI a high-performance web framework for building RESTful APIs in Python, allows you to build robust web APIs that are simple and intuitive and makes it easy to build quickly with very little boilerplate code. This book will help you set up a FastAPI application in no time and show you how to use FastAPI to build a REST API that receives and responds to user requests. You'll go on to learn how to handle routing and authentication while working with databases in a FastAPI application. The book walks you through the four key areas: building and using routes for create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) operations; connecting the application to SQL and NoSQL databases; securing the application built; and deploying your application locally or to a cloud environment. By the end of this book, ...

API Marketplace Engineering
API Marketplace Engineering

This is your hands-on guide to designing, building, and operating an API Marketplace to allow your organization to expose internal services and customer data securely for use by external developers. The book shows the mutual nature of a relationship in which organizations benefit from revenue and the reach of a new digital channel and third-party developers benefit from leveraging APIs to build unique applications. Providing open access is a regulatory requirement in some sectors, such as financial services, and this book helps you to build a platform to comply with regulatory requirements while at the same time encouraging and supporting use by external development teams. The book provides the blueprints for assembling teams and systems to build and support an API ecosystem. It offers insight into how the Marketplace can be constructed in a way to allow agility and flexibility to meet aggressive startup developer timelines while balancing established enterprise requir ...
Python for ArcGIS Pro
Python for ArcGIS Pro

Integrating Python into your day-to-day ArcGIS work is highly recommended when dealing with large amounts of geospatial data. Python for ArcGIS Pro aims to help you get your work done faster, with greater repeatability and higher confidence in your results. Starting from programming basics and building in complexity, two experienced ArcGIS professionals-turned-Python programmers teach you how to incorporate scripting at each step: automating the production of maps for print, managing data between ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online, creating custom script tools for sharing, and then running data analysis and visualization on top of the ArcGIS geospatial library, all using Python. You'll use ArcGIS Pro Notebooks to explore and analyze geospatial data, and write data engineering scripts to manage ongoing data processing and data transfers. This exercise-based book also includes three rich real-world case studies, giving you an opportunity to apply and extend the concepts you studied earli ...

Deploying NGINX as an API Gateway
Deploying NGINX as an API Gateway

In this eBook, we tell you how to take an existing NGINX Open Source or F5 NGINX Plus configuration and extend it to manage API traffic as well. When you use NGINX for API management, you tap into the high performance, reliability, robust community support, and expert professional support (for NGINX Plus customers) that NGINX is famous for. With that in mind, we recommend using the techniques described here to access NGINX capabilities wherever possible. Then use complementary solutions for any capabilities that they uniquely offer. In this foreword, we take a look at how NGINX fits as a potential complement or replacement for existing API gateway and API management approaches. We then introduce the rest of the eBook, which shows you how to implement many important API gateway capabilities with NGINX. ...
