Practical Microservices, in beta

Learn how microservices can help even the smallest projects remain agile with Practical Microservices, now in beta from pragprog.com/book/egmicro/.

Practical Microservices: Build Event-Driven Architectures with Event Sourcing and CQRS

Much ink has been spilled on the topic of microservices, but all of this writing fails to accurately identity what makes a system a monolith, define what microservices are, or give complete, practical examples, so you're probably left thinking they have nothing to offer you. You don't have to be at Google or Facebook scale to benefit from a microservice-based architecture. Microservices will keep even small and medium teams productive by keeping the pieces of your system focused and decoupled.

Discover the basics of message-based architectures, render the same state in different shapes to fit the task at hand, and learn what it is that makes something a monolith (it has nothing to do with how many machines you deploy to). Conserve resources by performing background jobs with microservices. Deploy specialized microservices for registration, authentication, payment processing, e-mail, and more. Tune your services by defining appropriate service boundaries. Deploy your services effectively for continuous integration. Master debugging techniques that work across different services. You'll finish with a deployable system and skills you can apply to your current project.

Add the responsiveness and flexibility of microservices to your project, no matter what the size or complexity.

  • About Beta Books

    Pragmatic Bookshelf pioneered the idea of Beta Books. Here's how it works: a couple of months before a book is finished, we'll release it here on pragprog.com as a beta.

    When you place your order, you'll get the Beta eBook in its current state immediately. This version could be anywhere from 75% to 100% complete. It hasn't been copyedited or indexed, and will likely contain typos fresh from the author. But this is your chance to participate in the process. You can report suggestions, fixes, wishes, and the author can incorporate your feedback throughout the process.

    If you have "notify" set in your user settings, you'll receive an email update when the book is updated, and it will be delivered to your Dropbox or GDrive if you have that configured.

    When the final book is published, we’ll let you know that as well. You’ll also continue to get updates to the eBook, free for the lifetime of that edition.
