The best way to learn microservices development is to build something!

Bootstrapping Microservices with Docker, Kubernetes, and Terraform guides you from zero through to a complete microservices project, including fast prototyping, development, and deployment. You’ll get your feet wet using industry-standard tools as you learn and practice the practical skills you’ll use for every microservices application. Following a true bootstrapping approach, you’ll begin with a simple, familiar application and build up your knowledge and skills as you create and deploy a real microservices project.

About the technology

Taking microservices from proof of concept to production is a complex, multi-step operation relying on tools like Docker, Terraform, and Kubernetes for packaging and deployment. The best way to learn the process is to build a project from the ground up, and that’s exactly what you’ll do with this audiobook!

About the audiobook

In Bootstrapping Microservices with Docker, Kubernetes, and Terraform, author Ashley Davis lays out a comprehensive approach to building microservices. You’ll start with a simple design and work layer by layer until you’ve created your own video streaming application. As you go, you’ll learn to configure cloud infrastructure with Terraform, package microservices using Docker, and deploy your finished project to a Kubernetes cluster.

What's inside:

  • Developing and testing microservices applications
  • Working with cloud providers
  • Applying automated testing
  • Implementing infrastructure as code and setting up a continuous delivery pipeline
  • Monitoring, managing, and troubleshooting
