Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Antonio Goncalves. Welcome to my course Microservices: The Big Picture. I am an independent developer, a book author, and a recognized Java champion. I also talk about microservices at international conferences where I hope to meet you one day. So, you've heard of microservices, but you don't know if it's the right technology for your next project. This course is for you. In this course, in less than two hours, you will discover what microservices are, their pros and cons. Some of the major topics that we will cover include understanding microservices from 10 thousand feet high. Then you will dive into the different elements of what makes a microservice architecture, its terminology, its patterns, and concepts. Finally, you will see the pros and cons of a microservice architecture. By the end of this course, you will be able to answer this crucial question, are microservices suited for my future project? From here, you should feel comfortable diving into microservices with courses such as Microservices Architecture by Rag Dhiman, and Modern Software Architecture by Dino Esposito. These courses will help you in getting the right answers to your questions. I hope you'll join me on this journey to demystify microservices with the Microservices: The Big Picture course at Pluralsight.
