About this book

Software architecture refers to designing the high-level architecture of software systems. It is evolving just like the languages we use. Modern C++ allows developers to write high-performance apps in a high-level language without sacrificing readability and maintainability. If you’re working with modern C++, this practical guide will help you put your knowledge to work and design scalable large-scale apps.

You’ll start by getting up to speed with the architectural concepts, including established patterns and rising trends. The book will then explain what software architecture is and help you explore its components. Next, you'll discover the design concepts involved in application architecture and the patterns in software development, before going on to learn how to build, package, integrate and deploy your components. Toward the concluding chapters, you'll explore the different architectural components such as maintainability, reusability, testability, performance, scalability, and security. Finally, you will cover an overview of distributed systems such as service-oriented architecture, microservices, and cloud-native and understand how to apply them in application development.

By the end of this book, you’ll be able to build distributed services using modern C++ and associated tools to deliver solutions as per your clients’ requirements.
