Course Overview
Hello everyone, my name is Rag Dhiman and welcome to my Playbook Styled course titled Microservices Architectural Design Patterns. I'm an author at Pluralsight and I have also been designing and developing software at a commercial level for well over 15 years. And in this time I've had hands on experience in implementing microservices architecture. And in this course we will look at design patterns and practices that help implement a successful microservices architecture. So over the last few years, as a software engineer responsible for software architecture, I've had the same design questions, the same design worries, and the same passion to get microservices right as you have. We all want to implement the microservices design principles in the most effective way to reap the benefits of a microservices architecture. And the next stage after understanding these design principles is to implement them using an effective toolset. However, what is an effective toolset for our microservices architecture? And effective toolset needs to consist of practical design patterns and practices that help achieve our microservices architecture and design principles. In this course you will find a catalog of all the design patterns and practices you will need in order to start implementing a highly effective microservices system. You'll find when it comes to implementing microservices architecture, you'll be consistently faced with specific questions round certain aspects of your design. The good news is this course catalogs design patterns and practices under modules that each try and answer these commonly recurring design questions. So by the end of the course you'll have most of the answers you need to effectively design your microservices architecture and these answers will be in the form of a toolset made up of design patterns and practices that you can use to resolve all your microservices challenges as an architect. So I hope you will join me on this journey at Pluralsight to learn how to effectively implement microservices architecture using my course titled Microservices Architectural Design Patterns Playbook.

How to Scope Microservices Using Bounded Contexts
Hi this is Rag Dhiman from Pluralsight and welcome to my course titled Microservices Architectural Design Patterns Playbook. And in this module we'll be looking at how the bounded contexts technique can be used as a strategic design pattern to size and scope our microservices. We will start off this module by introducing the bounded contexts technique as a medication to scope and size microservices. We will also look at how the use of a ubiquitous language can help the defining of a bounded context. We will also look at the disadvantages of sizing and scoping microservices without using a bounded context approach. We will then show a real life example of how to use a bounded context to scope and a size microservices step by step. We will then conclude the module by looking at the aggregation of services, how sometimes we need to combine services for specific reasons.

How to Compose Microservices Together
Hi this Rag Dhiman from Pluralsight and welcome to the course module titled How to Compose Microservices. This is one of the modules from the 18 modules under Microservices Architecture Design Patterns course, and like all the other modules in this course, this specific module tries to answer a specific design question related to microservices architecture using design patterns that are available. And some of these design patterns are high level design patterns, some of them are code level design patterns, and some of them are strategic design patterns. The aim is to give you a catalog of design patterns that solve specific problems related to microservices architectural design. You can study any of these modules in any order and by the end of the course you will have a complete toolset to become a microservices architect. Please note this course doesn't assume any previous knowledge of any technologies or design patterns featured, however some understanding on microservices architecture design principles will be an advantage, and if you haven't watched it already, but my course in microservices architecture in the Pluralsight library is highly useful in terms of learning the microservices design principles. Okay so in this module we will start off by looking at what is meant by composing microservices. We will then progress the module by looking at the different composition patterns that are available for your microservices architecture, from the broker pattern to the aggregate, to the chained, branch, and proxy composition patterns. And hopefully by the end of the module you'll see that how these composition patterns can be used as solutions within your microservices architecture.

Okay so in this module we'll try and answer the question how to make microservices more resilient and we will start off by looking at why resiliency is important for our microservices architecture. We will then summarize exactly what patterns and what approach we're going to use in order to make our microservices more resilient. Then we will progress the module by looking at specific design patterns in detail and approach to design in detail, all with the aim to answer the question how to make microservices more resilient.
