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.

As software developers we never stop improving our skills and knowledge, trying out new technologies and architectures, and building on the work of many others. Our profession's core skill is approaching a situation in a rational and methodical manner, breaking down each part of the problem into manageable chunks, and making sure that we – and others who have a stake in our work – can make sense of it all.

The microservices approach uses the same techniques in systems design, making each component easier to reason about and investigate. Like many approaches, it works very well when it is done with careful consideration, rather than a desire to follow a fashion.

Designing applications well takes a combination of knowledge, skill, and experience, and we hope that this book has contributed to the expertise that you bring to your work, whether it's paid, volunteering, or a hobby.
