Python Microservices Development – 2nd edition - Second Edition

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.

Content Delivery Networks

Some of the content our applications deliver does not change very often, such as HTML pages, JavaScript, images, and video streams. Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) aim to provide static content that is distributed around the world. Acting either as a layer in front of your application or alongside it, they can provide cacheable content to clients much more quickly than a customized service. Some CDNs will also allow you to dynamically scale images and video based on the client and its network quality, or provide protection against distributed denial of service attacks, making them a valuable tool for any web-based service.
