About this video

gRPC is a new and modern framework for building scalable, modern, and fast APIs. It is leveraged by many top tech companies such as Google, Square, and Netflix and enables programmers to write microservices in any language they want while keeping the ability to easily create communications between these services. It relies on protocol buffers as the transport mechanism and the Service Definition Language.

  • Learn the gRPC theory to understand how gRPC works
  • Compare gRPC and the REST API paradigm
  • Write your gRPC service definitions in .proto files
  • Generate server and client Code in Golang using the Gradle gRPC plugin
  • Implement unary, server streaming, client streaming, and the bi-directional streaming API
  • Practice your learning with exercises and solutions
