About this video

Microservices are an architectural style that promotes the development of complex applications as a suite of small services based on business capabilities. This course will help you identify the appropriate service boundaries within the business.

We'll start by looking at what microservices are, and their main characteristics. We will develop a basic distributed system using the microservice architecture and tools such as RabbitMQ service bus, to send messages across the separated services, or MongoDB, which is a NoSQL database. Within the course, we will focus on creating the HTTP API to act as a gateway to the whole system and so-called Activities Service, responsible for handling the incoming messages (or actually the commands that will be distributed through the services bus). We'll also implement the Identity Service, which will serve JSON Web Tokens (JWT) to authenticate requests incoming to the API. Our application will let the user store information about the activities performed at a given date for a selected category, for example, work, tasks, sport, and so on.

Once the request to save the activity is published within the system, the Activities Service will handle the business logic and decide whether the activity is valid, which will eventually result in publishing the event about processing the successful or rejected activity. In the course, you will also learn about commands and events as well as handlers which is one of the most popular design patterns when it comes to creating distributed systems.

By the end of the course, your services will be built using ASP.NET Core framework and later on, you will use tools such as Docker and Docker Compose to pack your application into the container and deploy it to the virtual machine running in the cloud.

Style and Approach

This video course serves as a stepping stone that helps .NET Core developers in their microservice architecture. This course provides practical hands-on experience in understanding the concepts and applying the examples.

Piotr was supportive, after emailing him directly
I watch a lot of training videos. I am also a member of plural sight and udemy too. I have couple of suggestions for this course instructor based on my online video learning experiences 1. SLOW DOWN!!!!!!! 2. TOO FAST TYPING and TOPIC CHANGING!! 3. TALK MORE ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO BUILD. Give us a diagram of what you are going to work on beforehand. 4. Use visual studio for solution that has multiple solutions. because in VS Code when you are writing a code in a file the name of the project gets hidden. and since you have a lot of files that are similar in name and content it is hard to keep track of what file you are working on. Finally This instructor has awesome knowledge and experience in the related topics. I would have given this course a 5+ starts if I didn't have #1,#2 and #3 complaints on my list. But anyway, great content. thanks to the instructor for his time and sharing of knowledge. regards Ishtiaque
