Microservices in Action is a practical book about building and deploying microservice-based applications. Written for developers and architects with a solid grasp of service-oriented development, it tackles the challenge of putting microservices into production.

About the Technology

Invest your time in designing great applications, improving infrastructure, and making the most out of your dev teams. Microservices are easier to write, scale, and maintain than traditional enterprise applications because they're built as a system of independent components. Master a few important new patterns and processes, and you'll be ready to develop, deploy, and run production-quality microservices.

About the Book

Microservices in Action teaches you how to write and maintain microservice-based applications. Created with day-to-day development in mind, this informative guide immerses you in real-world use cases from design to deployment. You'll discover how microservices enable an efficient continuous delivery pipeline, and explore examples using Kubernetes, Docker, and Google Container Engine.
