Publisher's Summary

Newly adapted for audiobook listeners.

As organizations shift from monolithic applications to smaller, self-contained microservices, distributed systems have become more fine-grained. But developing these new systems brings its own host of problems. This expanded second edition takes a holistic view of topics that you need to consider when building, managing, and scaling microservices architectures.

Through clear examples and practical advice, author Sam Newman gives everyone from architects and developers to testers and IT operators a firm grounding in the concepts. You'll dive into the latest solutions for modeling, integrating, testing, deploying, and monitoring your own autonomous services. Real-world cases reveal how organizations today manage to get the most out of these architectures.

Microservices technologies continue to move quickly. This book brings you up to speed.

  • Get new information on user interfaces, container orchestration, and serverless
  • Align system design with your organization's goals
  • Explore options for integrating a service with your system
  • Understand how to independently deploy microservices
  • Examine the complexities of testing and monitoring distributed services
  • Manage security with expanded content around user-to-service and service-to-service models

Easy to Understand

Sam is modest and funny which makes it easy to follow. The book covers a lot of areas and might seem shallow, but he recommends good books for each one so we can dive deeper if we want. Also, the narrator did a great job to rephrase some of the contents to convey the message to the listener instead of reading the code or pointing to a picture or diagram.

Great primer for distributed systems

Even though this book is titled Building Microservices, it is a great book for understanding distributed systems when building internet-based applications. It does a good job of going over trade offs and making the connections for why microservices are being built today.

Practical and honest

I loved it. Very easy to listen to text and performance-wise.

As opposed to many tech books, the author shares his personal experience and opinions of different approaches. I find reasoned opinions very valuable and tech books often lack those.

The book is honest. It's not an advertisement for microservices. It explains where they might work and where they don't and what difficulties there are even in cases where they are a good fit.

Best audiobook on the topic of microservices

An excellent book, well adapted to audio. Very few technology specific discussions and a really broad coverage of topics, seemingly only strongly opinionated when it matters. Highly recommended to audiobook listeners who want to dive into this specific domain.
