Building Serverless Applications with Google Cloud Run: A Real-World Guide to Building Production-Ready Services
Learn how to build a serverless real-world application in the cloud that's reliable, secure, maintainable, and can handle millions of users. If you have experience building traditional web applications, this practical guide shows you how to get started with serverless. Cloud engineer Wietse Venema takes you through the steps necessary to build serverless applications with Cloud Run, a container-based serverless platform on Google Cloud.
Through the course of the book, you'll learn how to become productive with serverless technology. You will build and explore several example applications that highlight different parts of the serverless stack, using (light) frontend technology and Go on the back end. You can also follow the lessons in the book using your own project on Google Cloud Platform.
You'll learn how to:
- Build a serverless application with Google's Cloud Run and Firestore
- Approach testing and development
- Handle user management and authentication
- Combine serverless with a traditional relational database
- Run and monitor production services
- Integrate your application with external APIs
