For developers with experience building web applications. In Bootstrapping Microservices with Docker, Kubernetes, and Terraform, 20-year software veteran Ashley Davis lays out his practical approach to microservices. There's no unnecessary theory-just working examples, and hands-on learning that you can use to build a useful application! Chapter by chapter, you'll follow the construction of a video streaming application, unlocking how specific technologies are used in the microservices development process. You'll learn how to create cloud infrastructure with Terraform, how to configure and package microservices using Docker, and how to deploy a microservice application on a Kubernetes cluster. When you're finished with this engaging project, you'll have all the skills you need to start building and deploying microservices to your own infrastructure. Creating, configuring and packaging a microservice using Docker
Developing and testing a microservices application using Docker-Compose
Applying automated testing to microservices
Using Terraform to implement infrastructure-as-code and setup a continuous delivery pipeline
Building a Kubernetes cluster to host your microservices
Monitoring, managing and troubleshooting a microservices application
The best way to learn microservices development is to build something! Bootstrapping Microservices with Docker, Kubernetes, and Terraform guides you from zero though 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. Microservices have become a standard architecture for established enterprises and startups alike. Although microservice designs can be complex, Docker, Kubernetes, and Terraform are the tools that make microservices applications accessible and cost-effective, providing the means to package, manage, and deploy microservices applications of any size. Bootstrapping Microservices with Docker, Kubernetes, and Terraform gradually builds up your skills with these powerful tools, allowing you to increase your knowledge and capability in stages as you build a real application from the ground up.
