Next up:

Are you ready to learn how to design and build microservices with RESTful APIs? Are you looking for dynamic, hands on training with in depth discussions to dig deep into your questions? Then this course is for you!

A comprehensive 3-day course comprising mixture of theory and practice at the leading edge of REST and Microservices. Course attendees will learn how to design and build microservices with RESTful APIs during the course through examples in code, live demos, and design challenges, together with lively discussion to help mature our thinking on what makes a competent microservices ecosystem.

Learn how to:

  • Explore the software delivery lifecycle of a service
  • Identifying microservice roles and boundaries
  • Designing microservice APIs
  • Operating and monitoring a system of services
  • Software project management strategy
  • Road-mapping for architectural ownership

Motivation for Microservices

  • Forces driving us towards distributed systems as the norm
  • Technology trends
  • Delivery practices

Microservices as a delivery style

  • Agile at scale
  • Design for replacement
  • Service guardians and project-as-investment

Enterprise Architecture: The Enemy?

  • Microservices and strategy
  • Enterprise architecture mappings to Microservices
  • The role of the EA

The Web Platform

  • Understanding the Web as a platform for distributed systems at large scale
  • Protocols, actors, middleware
  • Failure modes and fault tolerance

CRUD APIs

  • Basic Web APIs
  • Remote data at a distance

Clean Hypermedia APIs

  • How RESTful services provide paths through the execution of systems of services
  • Hypermedia controls: links, forms
  • Formats and media types for expressing service contract

Hypermedia Deep dive

  • Worked example outlining a system of microservices
  • Enterprise context, enterprise pressures
  • Introduction and evolution of services and business over time

From Monoliths to Microservices

  • Case study on service migration
  • Technology pressure
  • Architectural challenges and solutions
  • Politics

Dealing with Distribution

  • A look into leading edge technology and research into distributed systems
  • Considering how distributed systems theory and practice affects Microservices design choices

Scale, Availability & Fault Tolerance

  • The Web provides much, how do we use it?

Responsible evolution with Consumer-Driven Contracts

  • Continuous delivery
  • Bilateral service testing
  • Dealing with change

Event-driven systems

  • Aysnchronous, reliable event-driven computing over the Web
  • Understanding the scale-latency trade off in such systems

Security Protocols

  • Learning from the consumer Web
  • Service hacks and defenses

Enterprise Architecture and Governance

  • Warp n wedft model for architecture, delivery

Operations

  • Understanding the graph of systems of services
  • Platforms for monitoring and reasoning

Audience

Attendees must be comfortable with a modern programming language to participate in the coding challenges, but otherwise eager technologists are welcome.

Prerequisites

Bring your own hardware

To benefit most from this RESTful Microservices course, please bring your own laptop, so you can develop with your own tools and languages, rather than something you are not familiar with.
