At a time when nearly every vertical, regardless of domain, seems to need software running in the cloud to make money, microservices provide the agility and drastically reduced time to market you require. This hands-on guide shows you how to create, test, compile, and deploy microservices, using the ASP.NET Core free and open-source framework. Along the way, you’ll pick up good, practical habits for building powerful and robust services. Building microservices isn’t about learning a specific framework or programming language; it’s about building applications that thrive in elastically scaling environments that don't have host affinity, and that can start and stop at a moment’s notice. This practical book guides you through the process. Learn test-driven and API-first development concepts Communicate with other services by creating and consuming backing services such as databases and queues Build a microservice that depends on an external data source Learn about event sourcing, the event-centric approach to persistence Use ASP.NET Core to build web applications designed to thrive in the cloud Build a service that consumes, or is consumed by, other services Create services and applications that accept external configuration Explore ways to secure ASP.NET Core microservices and applications

You're a developer who knows nothing to Microservices. Which is fine, except that you need to start coding your next Microservices-based application using ASP.NET Core and Docker. Don't worry: I have you covered. I've been training hundreds of developers like you during 16 years, and converted my experience into this book. I know from experience teaching what takes more time to learn in Microservices, and will spend time only where appropriate. Plus this book is packed with exercises which build up into a full project: you develop two interdependent Microservices, each exposing a CRUD JSON API. You publish them in a Docker repository and run them in Docker. Read this book, and you can code your Microservices within a week.

Microservices are responsible for very tightly focused capabilities that are part of a more complex server-side software system. Microservices, when done well, are malleable, scalable, resilient, and allow a short lead time from start of implementation to deployment to production. When using microservices, the need for the technology to be lightweight and low ceremony grows, because creating new microservices needs to be quick and easy. OWIN is great for reuse of plumbing code and a lightweight web framework, like Nancy, is ideal. Microservices in .NET Core teaches readers how to build and deploy secure and operations-friendly microservices using Nancy. The book starts with an introduction to the microservices architectural style. Next, readers learn important practical aspects of developing microservices from simple core concepts to more sophisticated. Throughout the book, readers will see many code examples implementing it with lightweight .NET technologies' most prominently Nancy. By the end, they'll be able to quickly and easily build reliable and operations-friendly microservices using Nancy, OWIN and other open technologies. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

Book + Content Update Program “Beyond just describing the basics, this book dives into best practices every aspiring microservices developer or architect should know.” —Foreword by Corey Sanders, Partner Director of Program Management, Azure Microservice-based applications enable unprecedented agility and ease of management, and Docker containers are ideal for building them. Microsoft Azure offers all the foundational technology and higher-level services you need to develop and run any microservices application. Microservices with Docker on Microsoft Azure brings together essential knowledge for creating these applications from the ground up, or incrementally deconstructing monolithic applications over time. The authors draw on their pioneering experience helping to develop Azure’s microservices features and collaborating with Microsoft product teams who’ve relied on microservices architectures for years. They illuminate the benefits and challenges of microservices development and share best practices all developers and architects should know. You’ll gain hands-on expertise through a detailed sample application, downloadable at github.com/flakio/flakio.github.io. Step by step, you’ll walk through working with services written in Node.js, Go, and ASP.NET 5, using diverse data stores (mysql, elasticsearch, block storage). The authors guide you through using Docker Hub as a service registry, and Microsoft Azure Container service for cluster management and service orchestration. Coverage includes: Recognizing how microservices architectures are different, and when they make sense Understanding Docker containers in the context of microservices architectures Building, pulling, and layering Docker images Working with Docker volumes, containers, images, tags, and logs Using Docker Swarm, Docker Compose, and Docker Networks Creating Docker hosts using the Azure portal, Azure Resource Manager, the command line, docker-machine, or locally via Docker toolbox Establishing development and DevOps environments to support microservices applications Making the most of Docker’s continuous delivery options Using Azure’s cluster and container orchestration capabilities to operate and scale containerized microservices applications with maximum resilience Monitoring microservices applications with Azure Diagnostics, Visual Studio Application Insights, and Microsoft Operations Management Suite Developing microservices applications faster and more effectively with Azure Service Fabric An extensive sample application demonstrating the microservices concepts discussed throughout the book is available online In addition, this book is part of InformIT’s exciting new Content Update Program, which provides content updates for major technology improvements!
