Microservices are responsible for very tightly focused capabilities that are part of a more complex server-side software system. Microservices, when done well, are malleable, scalable, resilient, and allow a short lead time from start of implementation to deployment to production. When using microservices, the need for the technology to be lightweight and low ceremony grows, because creating new microservices needs to be quick and easy. OWIN is great for reuse of plumbing code and a lightweight web framework, like Nancy, is ideal. Microservices in .NET Core teaches readers how to build and deploy secure and operations-friendly microservices using Nancy. The book starts with an introduction to the microservices architectural style. Next, readers learn important practical aspects of developing microservices from simple core concepts to more sophisticated. Throughout the book, readers will see many code examples implementing it with lightweight .NET technologies' most prominently Nancy. By the end, they'll be able to quickly and easily build reliable and operations-friendly microservices using Nancy, OWIN and other open technologies. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
Annotation Over the past 10 years, distributed systems have become more fine-grained. From the large multi-million line long monolithic applications, we are now seeing the benefits of smaller self-contained services. Rather than heavy-weight, hard to change Service Oriented Architectures, we are now seeing systems consisting of collaborating microservices. Easier to change, deploy, and if required retire, organizations which are in the right position to take advantage of them are yielding significant benefits. This book takes an holistic view of the things you need to be cognizant of in order to pull this off. It covers just enough understanding of technology, architecture, operations and organization to show you how to move towards finer-grained systems.
