Anypoint Platform Architecture: Solution Design Training Course | MuleSoft

Anypoint Platform Architecture: Solution Design Training Course Description

Anypoint Platform solves the most challenging connectivity problems across SOA, SaaS, and APIs. It's a unified, highly productive, hybrid integration platform that creates an application network of apps, data, and devices with API-led connectivity.

This instructor-led course is for architects and developers who want to learn best practices for designing enterprise integration solutions with Anypoint Platform. It is a hands-on course that requires prior experience developing Mule applications but focuses on giving you the knowledge to make strategic decisions about your solutions instead of on implementation details. Note: This is not a development course; you will not be using Anypoint Studio or writing any code.

    This is great

    I really love the course editor in LearnPress. It is never easier when creating courses, lessons, quizzes with this one. It's the most useful LMS WordPress plugin I have ever used. Thank a lot! Testing quiz is funny, I like the sorting choice question type most.
