Organizations are rapidly adopting microservices architectures for their applications to remain agile, scalable, and robust. However, the very nature of microservices—being distributed and dynamic—presents unique challenges in visualizing and … Read more
Microservices are a software development architecture that structures an application as a collection of loosely coupled services. Each service is self-contained and performs a specific task, and services can communicate with each other through well-defined APIs.
Microservices have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. They offer a number of advantages over traditional monolithic architectures, including:
- Scalability: Microservices can be scaled independently, which makes it easier to scale up or down specific parts of an application as needed.
- Agility: Microservices make it easier to develop and deploy new features, as well as to fix bugs and improve performance.
- Resilience: Microservices are more resilient to failure, as a failure in one service does not necessarily affect the other services.
- Technology diversity: Microservices can be built using different programming languages and frameworks, which gives developers more flexibility.
Microservices are a good choice for a wide range of applications, from large-scale enterprise systems to small, personal projects. Some of the most popular companies using microservices include Amazon, Netflix, and Spotify.
If you're a developer, chances are you've been hearing buzzwords like "Microservices," "API-first," "Cloud-native," and "Headless." All of these are facets of a single powerful concept: MACH architecture. We're going to delve into the nitty-gritty of … Read more
While older applications tend to rely on monolithic architectures, newer software often uses microservices and cloud-native infrastructures. These decoupled architectures are more technologically efficient and resilient, as well as being easier to … Read more
Microservices have revolutionized software development by allowing us to modularize our applications into self-contained, independent services. However, when it comes to picking a language for building microservices, there’s no single best choice. … Read more
Looking to get started with microservices design patterns? First things first: microservice architecture is an organizational approach to software development where the programmer has to use a collection of small autonomous services. These services … Read more
Key Takeaways: You can allow teams to work in parallel by designing gRPC APIs before starting to code. When teams work in parallel, you significantly decrease the time-to-market of your products. A sample workflow has a few key … Read more
If you delve into the usual techniques of designing applications, you'll discover that they were developed as monoliths, packaged as a collection of code, and installed as a single entity. The process of managing tens of thousands of lines of code … Read more
In the video below, Iacopo Palletti, CTO at Nephilia, explains how to use Starlette (an ASGI Framework and toolkit) for building asynchronous microservices in Python. Async (asynchronous) programming is not new, but it is a new kid on the block … Read more
Introduction to Cloud-Native Microservices Cloud-native microservices refers to an app design strategy that allows developers to divide their applications into units known as microservices. The microservices are designed to share information and … Read more
