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.

Designing Jeeves

In Chapter 1, Understanding Microservices, we said that the natural way to build a microservices-based app is to start with a monolithic version that implements all the features, and then to split it into microservices that make the most sense. When you are designing software, you have enough to worry about with the flow of information through the system, meeting requirements, and working out how it all fits together. Having a design that encounters reality is when you start getting a good idea of what types of components you should have, and as you gain experience, it will become easier to spot potential microservices earlier on.

In this chapter, we will go through this process by building a monolithic application and implementing the required features. We will cover how each component works and why it's there, as well as how information flows through the system.

The chapter is organized into two main sections:
