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.

Version control

Many of us have worked on projects where we want to keep a copy of something "just in case." This can be homework from school, a project document for work, or, if you're particularly organized, some planning notes for something at home. Often, when we make a lot of changes, we end up with copies of the file with different names that may make sense at the time but quickly get out of control:


This situation gets even more chaotic when multiple people are working on a project. This is where version control really shines. Using a Version Control System (VCS) means that each project is kept as a repository of all its files, and every change you commit is kept forever, unless you work really hard to remove it from the repository's history. Accidentally deleted an important paragraph or a useful bit of Python code? It will be in the version control...
