5 tutorials for developers to learn new skills while working remotely

There’s never been a better time to sharpen your skills, learn something new, and build a career with MuleSoft. These MuleSoft tutorials are designed for developers of all skillsets and knowledge-base — whether you’re just getting started using Anypoint Platform or are a MuleSoft veteran. 

We have more than a dozen tutorials for developers to leverage, allowing them to expand their arsenal of knowledge from the comfort of their homes. In this blog post, I’m going to be highlighting five developer tutorials that will help you learn something new while working remotely.

#1 How to design your first API with API Designer

This tutorial is great for those looking for an introduction to MuleSoft. If you are new to Anypoint Platform and want to learn how easy it is to build your first API, this is the place you should start. In this tutorial, you will learn how to create your own, fully-functional API with MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform. Even with no API design experience, you’ll learn how to publish your first API Specification in around five minutes!

#2 Developing your first Mule Application

In this next tutorial, you will learn how to take the API you created in the previous tutorial, import it into your Anypoint Studio project, and develop a Mule application that queries a MySQL Database. You’ll get comfortable building integrations in Anypoint Studio, where you’ll create integrations by dragging and dropping different connectors onto the canvas.

#3 How to setup Git on Anypoint Studio using the EGit Plugin

After you’ve learned how to use Anypoint Studio, combine it with Git to track changes made to integrations. If you are new to MuleSoft and are looking to learn how to set up the EGit Plugin for Anypoint Studio, this is a great step-by-step tutorial on the best practices for source control. 

#4 Getting started with DataWeave

In this three-part tutorial series, you will learn some of the basic fundamentals of DataWeave. In these tutorials, you’ll learn what DataWeave is, how to write your first DataWeave script, how to map objects and create data transformations, and how to use strings and equations. 

#5 How to create your first MUnit test in Anypoint Studio

For more advanced developers, learning how to build an MUnit test is crucial for those looking to test queries in a local database rather than on a production database. You can use MUnit to test out your integrations before actually deploying them, which can be beneficial when dealing with large datasets.
