Building Reactive Microservices

by Matthew Alexander

Building resilience into applications and architecture grows increasingly more complex with the modern demands of day-to-day business. This course will teach you how to apply the foundational principles of reactive systems to meet these demands.

What you'll learn

In an effort to stem the increasing complexity of building resilience into modern day applications and architecture, this course, Building Reactive Microservices, covers the design and implementation of failure-tolerant microservices. You’ll learn design principles common to microservice architectures. You’ll also discover industry-proven best practices for building reactive applications, including event sourcing, idempotency, commutative messaging, and distributed transactions using SAGAs. Whether migrating toward microservices or seeking to improve upon what you currently have, at the end of this course you will have a proven set of skills for designing, developing, and/or improving the microservices currently under your influence.
