Look inside

You’re a software developer for Greengrocer, a chain of supermarkets that’s revamping its monolithic software to better handle its growing customer base. Using a design-first approach and the OpenAPI Specification, your task is to design a product catalog API to help employees track inventory. You’ll write API definitions through YAML description files and generate code and documentation for the API. When you’re done, you’ll have firsthand experience with OpenAPI Specification, YAML syntax, and schema definitions, and you’ll have improved the developer experience with good documentation.
