Comments about oreilly Getting Started with Mule Cloud Connect:
Good introduction to working with APIs with coverage of OAuth and building you're own connectors. Decent range of API how-tos. Book is focused on the consumption of APIs.
Would be good to get a view and how to for publishing APIs on the Mule platform. Some topics need more depth, such as working with DevKit to build custom connectors, dealing with custom authentication schemes and anomalies in existing APIs
Would definitely recommend. Great guide to making it easier to connect to many APIs
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
