Course Introduction

Microservices - also known as the microservice architecture - is a major architectural pattern in the software industry that structures an application as a collection of services that are.

  • Scalability, Availability and Resiliency
  • Loosely coupled
  • Independently deployable
  • Decentralized governance
  • Highly maintainable and testable
  • Organized around business capabilities
  • Failure isolation and Auto-Provisioning
  • Continuous delivery through DevOps
  • Owned by a small team

The microservice architecture enables the rapid, frequent, and reliable delivery of large, complex applications. It also enables an organization to evolve its technology stack.

Why do we need Microservices and what problems do they come to solve? Instructor will start from basics and go to the most advanced concepts such as Service Mesh and CI/CD.

At the end of this course, you'll become expert in Microservices, and you'll be able to design advanced, robust Microservices-based systems and convert a monolithic application into microservices.
