Learn to develop efficient and scalable microservices for server-side programming in Node.js using this hands-on guideAbout This BookReal world example explained chapter after chapter with code examples.Useful concepts for other languages like Java or PHPEasy to follow by people with little to none experience in Node.jsNode.js Version 0.12.2 and the latest compatible versions of Seneca and PM2Who This Book Is For

Node.js developer with basic server-side development knowledge - but no knowledge of implementing microservices in Node.js applications. Also useful for developers in other languages like Java or C#.

What You Will LearnIdentify where the microservice oriented architectures can tackle the most common problems in the software used by the big organisations.Re-architecture an existing monolithic system into a microservices oriented software.Build robust and scalable microservices using Seneca and Node.js.Testing of the microservices in insolation in order to create a solid system.Deploy and manage microservices using PM2Monitoring the health of a microservice (CPU, memory, I/O...) and how the degradation of the performance in one microservice could degrade the performance of full system.In Detail

Microservices architecture is a style of software architecture. As the name suggests, microservicess refers to small services. For a large implementation, this means breaking the system into really small, independent services. Alternative to monolithic architecture (where the entire system is considered as a single big, interwoven segment), microservices approach is getting more and more popular with large, complex applications that have a very long lifecycle, which require changes at regular intervals. Microservices approach allows this type of changes with ease as only a part of the system undergoes changes and change control is easy.

An example of such large system can be an online store—includes user interface, managing product catalog, processing orders, managing customer's account. In a microservices architecture each of these tasks will be divided and into smaller services. Also, these services will be further broken down into independent services—for user interface, there will be separate services for input, output, search bar management, and so on. Similarly, all other tasks can be divided in very small and simple services.

Style and approach

This book is a comprehensive guide to developing production-ready implementation of the microservices architecture with Node.js. Each chapter builds up on the earlier one creating a strong foundation on which you create your own microservice in a distributed environment.

Help your organization join the DevOps revolutionAbout This BookHelps you skill up your DevOps knowledge without a strong set of prerequisitesDeliver continuously improved software by showcasing the most advanced tools and techniquesAcquire a deeper insight into implementing DevOps in your organization and deliver results from day 1Who This Book Is For

This book is written for engineers and companies that want to learn the minimum set of required technologies and processes to be successful in the DevOps world.

This book also targets system administrators, developers, and IT professionals who would like to employ DevOps techniques and best practices to manage IT infrastructures or would like to acquire the necessary skills needed to work in DevOps teams.

What You Will LearnMaster development best practices.Understand how the Agile Delivery Methodology helps you ensure accuracy and quality.Analyze branching strategies such as branch creation, merging, and synchronization.Learn to automate builds to deploy and deliver code faster and more oftenExplore testing frameworks and how to automate testingLearn to put specific metrics in place to measure ROI of DevOps and monitor logs and events in a systemIn Detail

This book follows a unique approach to modern DevOps using cutting-edge tools and technologies such as Ansible, Kubernetes, and Google Cloud Platform.

This book starts by explaining the organizational alignment that has to happen in every company that wants to implement DevOps in order to be effective, and the use of cloud datacenters in combination with the most advanced DevOps tools to get the best out of a small team of skilled engineers. It also delves into how to use Kubernetes to run your applications in Google Cloud Platform, minimizing the friction and hassle of maintaining a cluster but ensuring its high availability.

By the end of this book, you will be able to realign teams in your company and create a Continuous Delivery pipeline with Kubernetes and Docker. With strong monitoring in place, you will also be able to react to adverse events in your system, minimizing downtime and improving the overall up-time and stability of your system.

Style and approach

This book takes a step-by-step practical approach to the implementation of DevOps. This book will teach you how to enable IT organizations to deliver faster and smarter through a unique approach using Code-Build-Test-Release-Configure-Monitor (CBTRCM).

Discover how to easily build and implement scalable microservices from scratchAbout This BookBuild, deploy, and test microservices from scratch with easeLearn how to efficiently build and implement microservices in Spring, and how to use Docker and Mesos to push the boundaries of what you thought possibleMaster the architecture of Mesos and intelligently distribute your task across clusters of machinesWho This Book Is For

This course is intended for Java and Spring developers, DevOps engineers, and system administrators who are familiar with microservice architecture and have a good understanding of the core elements and microservice applications but now want to delve into effectively implementing microservices at the enterprise level.

What You Will LearnUse a domain-driven approach to design and implement microservicesSecure microservices using Spring SecurityDeploy and test microservicesUse Spring Boot to develop microservicesFind out how to avoid common pitfalls when developing microservicesFamiliarize yourself with end-to-end microservices written in Spring Framework and Spring BootUnderstand the Mesos architectureDeploy a multi-node Mesos cluster using your favorite DevOpsIn Detail

Microservices are the next big thing in designing scalable, easy-to-maintain applications, making app development easier and providing great flexibility in utilizing various resources optimally.

This course is divided into three modules and each module is a mini-course in its own right, helping you enhance your knowledge.

Starting off with the first module, you will understand the core concepts and frameworks of microservice architecture. You will then learn how to set up the development environment and configure it before implementing continuous integration to deploy your microservice architecture. You will learn to secure microservices and test them effectively using REST Java clients and other tools. Finally, you will build smaller, lighter, and faster services that can be implemented easily.

The second module will help you implement the microservice architecture in Spring Framework, Spring Boot, and Spring Cloud. With the latest specifications of Spring, you'll be able to build modern, Internet-scale Java applications in no time. You'll delve into Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, Docker, Mesos, and Marathon, and understand how to deploy autonomous services without using heavy-weight application servers. By the end, you'll have a good grasp of Spring Framework and how to implement microservices using it.

In the last module of this course, you will learn about Apache Mesos, open source, cluster-management software that provides efficient resource isolations and sharing. This advanced module will show you how to deploy important, big data processing frameworks such as Hadoop, Spark, and Storm on Mesos and big data storage frameworks such as Cassandra, Elasticsearch, and Kafka.

This Learning Path combines some of the best that Packt has to offer in one complete, curated package. It includes content from the following Packt products:
