Adopting microservices means changing the way you think about the whole development process—from requirements to rollout. This book will show you the happy path.
In The Tao of Microservices, Second Edition
you will learn:
The Tao of Microservices
- The key principles of microservices architecture and how to apply them to real-world projects
- Advocating for the adoption of microservices best practices within your organization
- The design and implementation of large-scale microservice-based systems
- How to lead project teams implementing a microservice architecture
- The trade-offs demanded by the architecture
- How to judge if microservices is an appropriate design for your situation
- How to use type-safe modeling to ensure a coherent implementation across teams and services
was an instant classic, guiding thousands of developers at a time when microservices designs were still a bold new idea. This updated second edition is revised for a world where microservices are the de facto standard for enterprise development. This insightful guide helps engineers, architects, and technical leaders understand the principles of microservices that can be used with any project or stack. As you read, you’ll discover experience-based wisdom for making sensible tradeoffs and avoiding common pitfalls.
about the technology
Practically any application can be designed as a system of independent components, each of which handles a single responsibility. Individual microservices are easy for small teams without extensive knowledge of the entire system design to build and maintain. With microservices, your software is more resilient to bugs, better prepared for innovative new features, and allows more choice in tooling.
about the book
The Tao of Microservices, Second Edition
reveals the path to building microservices that’s based on proven methods pioneered by microservices guru Richard Rodger. The book is focused on core concepts and methodologies that you can use for both big and small projects, and the architecture described is applicable to any programming language and platform. You'll learn the technical and cultural reasons why microservices succeed where monoliths fail, along with strategies to balance the new trade-offs demanded by the architecture.
On the tech side, you’ll master concepts like asynchronous messaging, service APIs, and encapsulation, and make sure your architecture properly considers system management and local development. Along the way, you'll dig deep into detailed case studies with source code and documentation, and you’ll explore best practices for team development, planning for change, and tool choice.
