Apigee Learning and references.

At work there's an ongoing project to expose our existing set of Rest API's to outside world. The chosen product for API management is apigee. I wanted to learn more about this product and started looking around. 

I am documenting the set of resources that I completed: 

To get started create a trial account on apigee, google has been pretty kind with the eval accounts. One can be created by going to this link here

You'll get an activation link on the email entered and then once the account is activated google will provision a tenant (not sure if this is the right word here may be Organization may be a better word) for you. 

It takes a little bit of time to complete the provision but be patient and let google do the hard work for you :)

Once I had my eval Organization created, I followed steps here. Following the steps gives you an idea about the layout of the apigee UI. I highly recommend going through the Basic Concepts section too. 

I also found that there's a leaning track (again not sure if I am using the right word) on Coursera which has a set of courses which targets API development with apigee. 

(I have not completed this yet but hopefully I will and then update this post about how this course was).

Another one:

Here's the package which was used to implement the server as well as client for the http PATCH:
