Overview of this book

With the rising demand for and recent enhancements in IoT, a developer with sound knowledge of IoT is the need of the hour. This book will help you design, build, and operate large-scale E2E IoT solutions to transform your business and products, increase revenue, and reduce operational costs. Starting with an overview of how IoT technologies can help you solve your business problems, this book will be a useful guide to helping you implement end-to-end IoT solution architecture. You'll learn to select IoT devices; real-time operating systems; IoT Edge covering Edge location, software, and hardware; and the best IoT connectivity for your IoT solution. As you progress, you'll work with IoT device management, IoT data analytics, IoT platforms, and put these components to work as part of your IoT solution. You'll also be able to build IoT backend cloud from scratch by leveraging the modern app architecture paradigms and cloud-native technologies such as containers and microservices. Finally, you'll discover best practices for different operational excellence pillars, including high availability, resiliency, reliability, security, cost optimization, and high performance, which should be applied for large-scale production-grade IoT solutions. By the end of this IoT book, you'll be confident in designing, building, and operating IoT solutions.

The Twelve-Factor App methodology

The Twelve-Factor App methodology is a widely accepted methodology that defines a set of principles and best practices that software developers should follow to design and build modern cloud-native applications. In essence, cloud-native applications should be portable, scalable, and fast to deploy.

The following is a quick examination of the factors that make up the Twelve-Factor App methodology:

  1. Code base: Have one code base tracked in revision control, and many deploys. This factor mandates having a single code base or source code repository for each service or microservice of your application. In GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, or whichever source code repository you use in your project, you should create a dedicated repository for each microservice. This gives you flexibility and full control over each microservice, so the team assigned to build that microservice can do any updates or deployment without impacting other teams working with...
