Overview of this book

In the world of web development, leveraging data is the key to developing comprehensive applications, and RESTful APIs help you to achieve this systematically. This book will guide you in designing and developing web services with the power of TypeScript 3 and Node.js. You'll design REST APIs using best practices for request handling, validation, authentication, and authorization. You'll also understand how to enhance the capabilities of your APIs with ODMs, databases, models and views, as well as asynchronous callbacks. This book will guide you in securing your environment by testing your services and initiating test automation with different testing approaches. Furthermore, you'll get to grips with developing secure, testable, and more efficient code, and be able to scale and deploy TypeScript 3 and Node.js-powered RESTful APIs on cloud platforms such as the Google Cloud Platform. Finally, the book will help you explore microservices and give you an overview of what GraphQL can allow you to do. By the end of this book, you will be able to use RESTful web services to create your APIs for mobile and web apps and other platforms.

What are microservices?

Being an architectural style, microservices, or microservice architecture, carry out structuring a solution as a collection of services that are tightly coupled. This architecture also facilitates the delivery and Continuous Deployment (CD) of large, complex applications. If any organization wants to evolve its technology stack, microservices help in achieving that.

Microservice architecture is not going to solve all the problems of the world. In fact, like everything, it has several disadvantages, complexities, and problems. When using this architecture, numerous problems emerge and, of course, you must solve them all.

Applying microservices in the wrong place or at the wrong time could generate more problems than improvements.

In addition, it is necessary to change paradigms to define and create microservices, and that does not involve simply breaking...
