Python Microservices Development – 2nd edition - Second Edition

By: Simon Fraser, Tarek Ziadé

Overview of this book

The small scope and self-contained nature of microservices make them faster, cleaner, and more scalable than code-heavy monolithic applications. However, building microservices architecture that is efficient as well as lightweight into your applications can be challenging due to the complexity of all the interacting pieces. Python Microservices Development, Second Edition will teach you how to overcome these issues and craft applications that are built as small standard units using proven best practices and avoiding common pitfalls. Through hands-on examples, this book will help you to build efficient microservices using Quart, SQLAlchemy, and other modern Python tools In this updated edition, you will learn how to secure connections between services and how to script Nginx using Lua to build web application firewall features such as rate limiting. Python Microservices Development, Second Edition describes how to use containers and AWS to deploy your services. By the end of the book, you’ll have created a complete Python application based on microservices.

Implementing microservices with Python

Python is an amazingly versatile language. As you probably already know, Python is used to build many different kinds of applications – from simple system scripts that perform tasks on a server to large object-oriented applications that run services for millions of users. Python is also used in machine learning and data analysis tools.

Python sits comfortably in the top five languages in the TIOBE index (, and has reached as high as number two. It's probably even bigger in the web development world since languages like C are rarely used as main languages to build web applications.

This book makes the assumption that you are already familiar with the Python programming language. If you are not an experienced Python developer, you can read the book Expert Python Programming, Third Edition, where you will learn advanced programming skills in Python.

However, some developers...
