Advanced Cloud Native Go

Video Description

Learn to build and maintain improved Microservices with Go

About This Video

  • Implement the next microservice with one of the Go frameworks

  • Real-world, practical videos that get you up and running with building Microservices with Go

  • Work with the latest updates of the Go programming language for Cloud Development

  • In Detail

    Go is a modern cross-platform programming language that is very powerful yet simple; it is an excellent choice for microservices and cloud applications. Go is gaining more and more popularity, and becoming an attractive skill as well.

    In this video you will start with diving into the anatomy of cloud native application platform with its key functions. Here you will implement an advanced Go microservice using one of the frameworks, containerize and compose it using Docker, and finally deploy and orchestrate the service using Kubernetes. After that you will be introduced to Consul as the infrastructure component used throughout the course. You will learn to add service registration capabilities to a Go microservice and implement service lookup and configuration on the client side. You will also implement a modified version that uses Kubernetes only service discovery and configuration mechanisms. Next, you will briefly discuss the two major communication patterns with their pros and cons. You will then implement synchronous RPC style communication using a binary protocol such as ProtoBuf and apply a circuit breaker for resiliency. Finally, you will also implement two different forms of asynchronous communication in Go using RabbitMQ or Kafka as a message-oriented middleware.

    By the end of this video tutorial, you will be well versed with building an advanced, robust, and scalable Go Microservices that are deployable to the cloud.
