Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll reduce duplicate search requests in an e-commerce store to bring down unnecessary data usage of microservices. You’ll implement caching and database functionalities that can reduce search duplication during key promotional events like Black Friday, and set up a synchronization of search requests which occur at the same moment.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.

Andres Sacco

Andres Sacco is a technical leader at Prisma who has experience with many different languages including Java, PHP, and Node.js. At his previous job, Andres helped to find alternative ways to optimize data transfer between microservices, which reduced the cost of infrastructure by 55%. Before introducing these optimizations, he investigated different testing methods for better coverage than unit tests of the microservices. He also dictated internal courses about new technologies and has written articles on Medium. Andres is a co-author of the book Beginning Scala 3, from Apress.
