Get the authoritative guide to Dapr, the distributed application runtime that works with new and existing programming languages alike. Written by the model's creators, this introduction shows you how Dapr not only unifies stateless, stateful, and actor programming models but also runs everywhere-in the cloud or on the edge.
Authors Haishi Bai and Yaron Schneider, both with Microsoft's Azure CTO team, explain that, with Dapr, you don't need to include any SDKs or libraries in your user code. Instead, you automatically get flexible binding, state management, the actor pattern, pub-sub, reliable messaging, and many more features. This book shows developers, architects, CIOs, students, and computing enthusiasts how to get started with Dapr.
