Look inside
Tips, best practices, and handy Python features for designing better microservices architecture and streamlining API integrations.

Microservice APIs teaches you practical techniques for designing successful microservices with APIs that are easy to understand, consume, and maintain. Inside you’ll learn strategies for successful API integrations, how to avoid tight coupling, implement services with clear boundaries, manage cloud deployments, and handle microservices security.

In Microservice APIs, you’ll learn:

  • Service decomposition strategies for microservices
  • Documentation-driven development for APIs
  • Swagger/OpenAPI specification for REST APIs and Schema Definition Language for GraphQL APIs
  • Service implementation patterns for loosely coupled components
  • Security and authentication strategies
  • Deploying and operating microservices in the cloud
  • Building microservices with Flask and other frameworks

about the technology

Standard Python web applications, such as those you’d typically build with Django or Flask, can be hard to scale and maintain when built as monoliths. Microservices design makes it possible to isolate key features and functionality as independently written and maintained services. To take advantage of this more resilient architecture, you need to learn the patterns, frameworks, and tools that make Python-based microservices easy to build and manage.

about the book

Microservice APIs shares successful strategies and techniques for designing Microservices systems, with a particular emphasis on creating easy-to-consume APIs. You’ll benefit from author Jose Haro Peralta’s years of experience experimenting with microservices architecture, dodging pitfalls and learning from mistakes he’s made.

This practical guide focuses on implementation over philosophizing and has just enough theory to get you started. You’ll quickly go hands on designing the architecture for a microservices platform, produce standard specifications for REST and GraphQL APIs, and bake in authentication features to keep your APIs secure. Written in a framework-agnostic manner, its universal principles of API and microservices design can easily be applied to your favorite stack and toolset.

A thorough introduction to the concept of developing microservice APIs with Python.

Rodney Weis

The Author has done an excellent job in explaining key concepts.

Manish Jain

There are many pitfalls with microservices, and this book will provide you with all the knowledge you need to be properly prepared to create your first one!

Pierre-Michel Ansel

Before you start coding for your microservice please read this book once, irrespective of your programming language.

Debmalya Jash

A roundhouse kick for all aspects regarding APIs and python.

Björn Neuhaus

A very thorough discussion of the considerations that are involved in developing microservice APIs with Python.

Rodney Weis

I really like both the breadth and depth of the content. It is exciting to see an entire book which focuses upon Python as a back-end component—for which I see a natural fit.

Bryan Miller

A great book for Python developers to understand how to implement APIs using web frameworks.

Sambasiva Andaluri

I genuinely feel smarter for having read this book and knowing that I can refer to it when I make my next design.
