About the course
Build maintainable, testable & scalable Microservices with Node.js.
Microservices enable us to develop software in small pieces that work together but can be developed separately, one of the reasons why enterprises have started embracing them. For the past few years, Node.js has emerged as a strong candidate for developing these microservices because of its ability to increase developers' productivity and applications performance. This video is an end-to-end course on how to dismantle your monolith applications and embrace the microservice architecture.
We delve into various solutions such as Docker Swarm and Kubernetes to scale our microservices. Testing and deploying these services while scaling is a real challenge; we'll overcome this challenge by setting up deployment pipelines that break up the application build processes into several stages.
The course will help you implement advanced microservice techniques and design patterns on an existing application built with microservices. You’ll delve into techniques that you can use today to build your own powerful microservices architecture.
