The small scope and self-contained nature of microservices make them faster, cleaner, and more scalable than code-heavy monolithic applications. However, building microservices architecture that is efficient as well as lightweight into your applications can be challenging due to the complexity of all the interacting pieces.
Python Microservices Development, Second Edition will teach you how to overcome these issues and craft applications that are built as small standard units using proven best practices and avoiding common pitfalls. Through hands-on examples, this book will help you to build efficient microservices using Quart, SQLAlchemy, and other modern Python tools.
In this updated edition, you will learn how to secure connections between services and how to script nginx using Lua to build web application firewall features such as rate limiting. Python Microservices Development, Second Edition describes how to use containers and AWS to deploy your services. By the end of the book, you'll have created a complete Python application based on microservices.
Things you will learn:
Fair book about how to build microservices, even if the usage of Quart is is a bit odd (an offspring of Flask), and a lot of the book is spent on discussing different tech choices.
But it is a fair introduction to the subject.
