Cloud Native Patterns video edition

Video description

In Video Editions the narrator reads the book while the content, figures, code listings, diagrams, and text appear on the screen. Like an audiobook that you can also watch as a video.

This book fills a gap between theory and practice...entertaining and educational.
From the Foreword by Gene Kim, coauthor of The Phoenix Project

Cloud Native Patterns is your guide to developing strong applications that thrive in the dynamic, distributed, virtual world of the cloud. This book presents a mental model for cloud-native applications, along with the patterns, practices, and tooling that set them apart.

about the technology

Cloud platforms promise the holy grail: near-zero downtime, infinite scalability, short feedback cycles, fault-tolerance, and cost control. But how do you get there? By applying cloudnative designs, developers can build resilient, easily adaptable, web-scale distributed applications that handle massive user traffic and data loads. Learn these fundamental patterns and practices, and you’ll be ready to thrive in the dynamic, distributed, virtual world of the cloud.

about the book

With 25 years of experience under her belt, Cornelia Davis teaches you the practices and patterns that set cloud-native applications apart. With realistic examples and expert advice for working with apps, data, services, routing, and more, she shows you how to design and build software that functions beautifully on modern cloud platforms. As you read, you will start to appreciate that cloud-native computing is more about the how and why rather than the where.

what's inside

  • The lifecycle of cloud-native apps
  • Cloud-scale configuration management
  • Zero downtime upgrades, versioned services, and parallel deploys
  • Service discovery and dynamic routing
  • Managing interactions between services, including retries and circuit breakers

about the audience

Requires basic software design skills and an ability to read Java or a similar language.
