Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Floyd May and welcome to my course Micro service is getting started. I am an independent software crafter and consultant, and I've been building software professionally for almost 20 years. Micro Service's have enabled massive scale ability for companies like Netflix, Amazon and uber, allowing them to process enormous amounts of data and facilitate productivity for hundreds or even thousands of software developers. In this course, we're going to explore what micro service's are what benefits they could bring the complexities and challenges that the introduce and what you can do to understand the trade offs. Some of the major topics that we will cover include managing the quality of micro service's architectures, building and running resilient Micro service is in production. Choosing between synchronous and asynchronous communications architectures and evaluating your organization's readiness for adopting micro service is by the end of this course, you'll know how to get started with Micro service is in your own environment. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with general practices in software development. You don't need to be a programmer to learn from this course. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn the basics of micro service is with the micro Service is getting started course at Pluralsight.
