About the Book

Book description

Develop microservice-based enterprise applications with expert guidance to avoid failures and technological debt with the help of real-world examples

Key Features

  • Implement the right microservices adoption strategy to transition from monoliths to microservices
  • Explore real-world use cases that explain anti-patterns and alternative practices in microservices development
  • Discover proven recommendations for avoiding architectural mistakes when designing microservices

Book Description

Microservices have been widely adopted for designing distributed enterprise apps that are flexible, robust, and fine-grained into services that are independent of each other. There has been a paradigm shift where organizations are now either building new apps on microservices or transforming existing monolithic apps into microservices-based architecture.

This book explores the importance of anti-patterns and the need to address flaws in them with alternative practices and patterns. You'll identify common mistakes caused by a lack of understanding when implementing microservices and cover topics such as organizational readiness to adopt microservices, domain-driven design, and resiliency and scalability of microservices. The book further demonstrates the anti-patterns involved in re-platforming brownfield apps and designing distributed data architecture. You’ll also focus on how to avoid communication and deployment pitfalls and understand cross-cutting concerns such as logging, monitoring, and security. Finally, you’ll explore testing pitfalls and establish a framework to address isolation, autonomy, and standardization.

By the end of this book, you'll have understood critical mistakes to avoid while building microservices and the right practices to adopt early in the product life cycle to ensure the success of a microservices initiative.

What you will learn

  • Discover the responsibilities of different individuals involved in a microservices initiative
  • Avoid the common mistakes in architecting microservices for scalability and resiliency
  • Understand the importance of domain-driven design when developing microservices
  • Identify the common pitfalls involved in migrating monolithic applications to microservices
  • Explore communication strategies, along with their potential drawbacks and alternatives
  • Discover the importance of adopting governance, security, and monitoring
  • Understand the role of CI/CD and testing

Who this book is for

This practical microservices book is for software architects, solution architects, and developers involved in designing microservices architecture and its development, who want to gain insights into avoiding pitfalls and drawbacks in distributed applications, and save time and money that might otherwise get wasted if microservices designs fail. Working knowledge of microservices is assumed to get the most out of this book.
