Video: Microservices, IoT and Azure
October 15, 2015
I recently recorded a session for the Collab365 virtual conference that is an overview of my recently released book, Microservices, IoT and Azure. The book provides practical guidance for adopting a high velocity, continuous delivery process to create reliable, scalable, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions that are designed and built using a microservice architecture, deployed to the Azure cloud, and managed through automation. Microservices, IoT, and Azure offers software developers, architects, and operations engineers’ step-by-step directions for building SaaS applications—applications that are available 24×7, work on any device, scale elastically, and are resilient to change–through code, script, exercises, and a working reference implementation.
A working definition of microservices is provided and I contrast this approach with traditional monolithic Layered Architecture. A fictitious, home-biomedical startup is used to demonstrate microservice architecture and automation capabilities for cross-cutting and business services as well as connected device scenarios for Internet of Things (IoT). Several Azure PaaS services are detailed including Storage, SQL Database, DocumentDb, Redis Cache, Cloud Services, Web API’s, API Management, IoT Hub, IoT Suite, Event Hub, and Stream Analytics. Finally the book looks to the future and examines Service Fabric to see how microservices are becoming the de facto approach to building reliable software in the cloud.
The video combines presentation with live demos that will give you insight into the concepts laid out in the book and the reference implementation that is used to demonstrate those concepts.
You will learn :
- Why is microservice architecture a compelling pattern for cloud-native applications
- What are microservices and how do they compare to traditional monolithic layered architecture
- How microservices are used in Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data Analytics solutions
- How to use PowerShell to automate microservice development, test, staging and deployment
