Microservice Development Cookbook: Design and build independently deployable, modular services

Paul Osman


Quickly learn and employ practical methods for developing microservices

Key Features

  • Get to grips with microservice architecture to build enterprise-ready applications
  • Adopt the best practices to find solutions to specific problems
  • Monitor and manage your services in production

Book Description

Microservices have become a popular way to build distributed systems that power modern web and mobile apps. Deploying your application as a suite of independently deployable, modular, and scalable services has many benefits. In this book, you'll learn to employ microservices in order to make your application more fault-tolerant and easier to scale and change.

Using an example-driven approach, Microservice Development Cookbook introduces you to the microservice architectural style. You'll learn how to transition from a traditional monolithic application to a suite of small services that interact to provide smooth functionality to your client applications. You'll also learn about the patterns used to organize services, so you can optimize request handling and processing and see how to handle service-to-service interactions. You'll then move on to understanding how to secure microservices and add monitoring in order to debug problems. This book also covers fault-tolerance and reliability patterns that help you use microservices to isolate failures in your applications.

By the end of the book, you'll be able to work with a team to break a large, monolithic codebase into independently deployable and scalable microservices. You'll also study how to efficiently and effortlessly manage a microservice-based architecture.

What you will learn

  • Learn how to design microservice-based systems
  • Create services that fail without impacting users
  • Monitor your services to perform debugging and create observable systems
  • Manage the security of your services
  • Create fast and reliable deployment pipelines
  • Manage multiple environments for your services
  • Simplify the local development of microservice-based systems

Who this book is for

Microservice Development Cookbook is for developers who would like to build effective and scalable microservices. Basic knowledge of the microservices architecture is assumed.
