Parth Ghiya



Build, test, deploy, and scale microservices

Key Features

  • Build and implement microservices from scratch with TypeScript
  • Understand the microservice architecture and its implementation with TypeScript
  • Deploy, scale and monitor Microservices for consistent high performance

Book Description

In the last few years or so, Microservices have achieved the rock star status and right now is one of the most tangible solutions in enterprises to make quick, effective, scalable applications. The apparent rise of Typescript and long evolution from ES5 to ES6 has seen lots of big companies move to ES6 stack. Typescript due to its huge advantages like class & Module supports, static type checking, syntax similarity to JavaScript, has become of one of the most de facto solution.

If you want to learn how to leverage the power of microservices to build robust architecture using reactive programming and Typescript in NodeJS, then this book is for you.

This will be an end to end book showing you the implementation of MicroServices from the scratch; right from starting the project to hardening and securing your services. You will begin with a brief introduction to Microservices before learning to break your Monolith applications into Microservices. From here, you will learn reactive programming patterns and how to build APIs for microservices. The next set of topics will take you through the microservice architecture with TypeScript and communication between the services. From here, you will learn to test and deploy your TypeScript microservices using latest tools and implement Continuous Integration. Finally, you will learn to secure and harden your microservice.

By the end, you will be able to build production ready, scalable & maintainable microservices using Node JS and Typescript.

What you will learn

  • Get acquainted with the fundamentals behind microservices.
  • Discuss the behavioral changes needed for moving from monolithic to microservices.
  • Deep dive into Reactive programming & Typescript & Node JS to learn its fundamentals in microservices
  • Understand and design a service gateway and service registry for your microservices.
  • Maintain the state of microservice and handle dependencies.
  • Perfect your microservice with Unit testing & Integration testing
  • Do a complete cycle right from Developing a microservice, securing it, deploying it & then scaling it.

Who This Book Is For

This book is for JavaScript developers seeking to utilize their node JS and Typescript skills to build microservices & move away from the monolithic architecture. Basic knowledge of TypeScript and Node.js is assumed.
