Manning Publications Co.
Manning is a publisher of computer books for professionals. We published our first book in 1993 and have been learning from our successes and even more from our mistakes, ever since. Every new book teaches us something to help us improve. How to choose the topics; how to find the right authors; how to help authors write their manuscripts; how to ensure the content is valuable and easy to learn; how to get the word out about the book.
We publish standalone titles as well as books in series: Hello!, In Action, In Practice, In Depth, and In a Month of Lunches. Readers can access our books before they are finished through the Manning Early Access Program, and we make our books available through Safari and iBooks.
Print copies, wherever they are bought, come with free electronic versions in PDF, ePub and Kindle formats, downloadable from the Manning site.

Living with Your Legacy
Featuring Julie Lerman
For many developers the painful reality is that they are stuck maintaining legacy systems where rewrites are out of the question. In this talk Julie Lerman draws from her own experiences to share tips for keeping clients' businesses running while (slowly) helping them evolve to modern times.... architecture legacy-systems
Three Challenges in Microservices: Developer Feedback, Continuous Delivery, and Cost Optimization
Featuring Casey Lee
Microservices present unique challenges around managing dependencies, continuous delivery, test automation and cost optimization. Often, these aren't obvious until well into an organisation's transition to microservices. In this talk, Casey Lee will share experience-based approaches to...devops optimization microservices
Real-world API Modularization with DDD and Hypermedia
Featuring Einar Høst
Einar W. Høst shares the real-world story of using DDD and hypermedia to modularize the monolithic API for the NRK TV streaming service to improve both reliability and development speed for new features.architecture bounded-context hypermedia modular-api monolith-migrations domain-driven-design microservices
Dark Energy, Dark Matter: Imperfect Metaphors for Designing Microservices
Featuring Chris Richardson
In this talk Chris Richardson discusses how to balance two opposing forces in microservices architecture: the repulsive forces that drive the decomposition of your application into services, and the attractive forces that resist decomposition and bind software elements together.decomposition architecture microservices
Dev Faster with Contract Driven API Development
Featuring Jeremy Davis
DevOps, Microservices, CI/CD, Pipelines, Test Driven Development all reduce time to production. But the bottleneck in software development has always been coordinating humans.devops microservices api
How Cognitive Biases and Ranking Can Foster an Ineffective Architecture
Featuring Evelyn van Kelle and Kenny Baas-Schwegler
If we are not aware of them, cognitive biases and ranking can kill the insights, wisdom and benefits of collaborative modeling. In this we will interactively explore how we can improve our facilitation skills and focus on neuro-inclusiveness with Lewis Deep Democracy (LDD).architecture collaborative-design facilitation lewis-deep-democracy inclusivity ranking cognitive-bias
Event-Driven Security Detection and Remediation as Code
Featuring Paul Duvall
An event-driven architecture uses events to trigger targets and communicate between decoupled services to achieve massive scale and flexibility.devops security devseccon
Good Fences Make Good Neighbours
Featuring Trond Hjorteland
We know that good fences make good neighbours, but only when the boundaries are placed correctly. How can we create robust and sustainable modular designs when identifying those boundaries are so challenging?devops ddd microservices
Modular Monoliths: How To Power Your Journey Using Continuous Delivery & Domain Modelling
Featuring Matt Belcher
Teams are often too eager to ditch their monolith codebase in favour of new shiny Microservices. But if your current monolith doesn't reflect your domain, you're all but guaranteed to have a painful Microservices journey. In this talk, Matt argues why it is important to have a ‘Modular...architecture modular-monoliths monolith-migrations microservice
