One of the biggest challenges for organizations that have adopted microservice architecture is the lack of architectural, operational, and organizational standardization. After splitting a monolithic application or building a microservice ecosystem from scratch, many engineers are left wondering what's next. In this practical book, author Susan Fowler presents a set of microservice standards in depth, drawing from her experience standardizing over a thousand microservices at Uber. You'll learn how to design microservices that are stable, reliable, scalable, fault tolerant, performant, monitored, documented, and prepared for any catastrophe.

Explore production-readiness standards, including:

  • Stability and Reliability: develop, deploy, introduce, and deprecate microservices; protect against dependency failures
  • Scalability and Performance: learn essential components for achieving greater microservice efficiency
  • Fault Tolerance and Catastrophe Preparedness: ensure availability by actively pushing microservices to fail in real time
  • Monitoring: learn how to monitor, log, and display key metrics; establish alerting and on-call procedures
  • Documentation and Understanding: mitigate tradeoffs that come with microservice adoption, including organizational sprawl and technical debt

If you’re a web programmer, your experiences have taught you certain lessons—and only some of them apply well to Drupal. Drupal has its own set of programming principles that require a different approach, and many programmers make mistakes when relying on skills they’ve used for other projects. This book will show you which programming techniques you can use—and which you should avoid—when building web applications with this popular content management framework.

Updated to cover both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8, the guidelines in this book demonstrate which programming practices conform to the "Drupal way" and which don’t. The book also serves as an excellent guide for Drupal 7 programmers looking to make the transition to Drupal 8.

  • Get an overview of Drupal, including Drupal core and add-on modules and themes
  • Learn Drupal’s basic programming principles, such as the ability to customize behavior and output with hooks
  • Compare Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 programming methods, APIs, and concepts
  • Discover common Drupal programming mistakes—and why hacking is one of them
  • Explore specific areas where you can put your programming skills to work
  • Learn about the new object-oriented Drupal 8 API, including plugins and services

Writing code is the easy part of your work as a software developer. This practical book lets you explore the other 90%Ñeverything from requirements discovery and rapid prototyping to business analysis and designing for maintainability. Instead of providing neatly packaged advice from on high, author Gregory Brown presents detailed examples of the many problems developers encounter, including the thought process it takes to solve them.

He does this in an unusual and entertaining fashion by making you the main character in a series of chapter-length stories. As these stories progress, the examples become more complex, and your responsibilities increase. Together, these stories take you on a journey that will make you question and refine the way you think about, and work on, software projects.

Steps in this unique journey include:

  • Using prototypes to explore project ideas
  • Spotting hidden dependencies in incremental changes
  • Identifying the pain points of service integrations
  • Developing a rigorous approach towards problem-solving
  • Designing software from the bottom up
  • Data modeling in an imperfect world
  • Gradual process improvement as an antidote for over-commitment
  • The future of software development
