JavaScript Cloud Native Development Cookbook

Book Description

Master over 60 recipes to help you deliver completely scalable and serverless cloud-native applications

Key Features

  • Develop global scale and event-driven autonomous services
  • Continuously deploy, test, observe, and optimize your services
  • Practical Node.js recipes for serverless cloud-native development

Book Description

Cloud-native development is a modern approach to building and running applications that leverages the merits of the cloud computing model. With cloud-native development, teams can deliver faster and in a more lean and agile manner as compared to traditional approaches. This recipe-based guide provides quick solutions for your cloud-native applications.

Beginning with a brief introduction, JavaScript Cloud-Native Development Cookbook guides you in building and deploying serverless, event-driven, cloud-native microservices on AWS with Node.js. You'll then move on to the fundamental patterns of developing autonomous cloud-native services and understand the tools and techniques involved in creating globally scalable, highly available, and resilient cloud-native applications. The book also covers multi-regional deployments and leveraging the edge of the cloud to maximize responsiveness, resilience, and elasticity.

In the latter chapters you'll explore techniques for building fully automated, continuous deployment pipelines and gain insights into polyglot cloud-native development on popular cloud platforms such as Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). By the end of the book, you'll be able to apply these skills to build powerful cloud-native solutions.

What you will learn

  • Implement patterns such as Event Streaming, CQRS, and Event Sourcing
  • Deploy multi-regional, multi-master solutions
  • Secure your cloud-native services with OAuth and OpenID Connect
  • Create a robust cloud-native continuous deployment pipeline
  • Run services on AWS, Azure, and GCP
  • Implement autonomous services to limit the impact of failures

Who this book is for

If you want to develop powerful serverless, cloud-native solutions, this book is for you. You are expected to have basic knowledge of concepts of microservices and hands-on experience with Node.js to understand the recipes in this book.
