Microservices enable us to develop software in small pieces that work together but can be developed separately, one of the reasons why enterprises have started embracing them. For the past few years, Node.js has emerged as a strong candidate for developing these microservices because of its ability to increase developers' productivity and applications performance. This video is an end-to-end course on how to dismantle your monolith applications and embrace the microservice architecture. We delve into various solutions such as Docker Swarm and Kubernetes to scale our microservices. Testing and deploying these services while scaling is a real challenge; we'll overcome this challenge by setting up deployment pipelines that break up the application build processes into several stages. The course will help you implement advanced microservice techniques and design patterns on an existing application built with microservices. You will delve into techniques that you can use today to build your own powerful microservices architecture. The code files are placed at this link Style and Approach: Every step is followed by a walk-through on screen and on the console, and slides to help explain core concepts. Plus, a lot of complementary reads will be included with each video for those keen to know more in-depth.

Target Audience 

This course targets developers with intermediate server-side experience with Node.js, including knowledge and previous experience with developing and deploying microservices, who are keen to sharpen their skills and learn to scale large apps for the real world. Developers with similar knowledge in another programming language will benefit from this course as well.

Business Outcomes  

  • Create deployment pipelines for efficiently releasing lightning quick updates and fixes for your applications
  • Gain hands-on experience with advanced techniques of architecting and building an application with microservices
  • Deploy your microservices to a cluster of containers and scale easily
  • Advanced design patterns to create efficient microservices
