Building Microservices with AKS and VSTS – Part 4

Our quest to build microservices in Azure with managed Kubernetes (AKS) and Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) is almost at the end destination. Previous posts: http://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/azuredev/2018/03/27/building-microservices-with-aks-and-vsts-part-1/ http://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/azuredev/2018/04/03/building-microservices-with-aks-and-vsts-part-2/ http://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/azuredev/2018/04/10/building-microservices-with-aks-and-vsts-part-3/ Leaving things last time we actually had most of what you would call a working cluster. Actually, we had something reachable over the Internet, with proper certificates…

Microservices – Isolated Data & State

New technology adoption can be unnerving and can face strong opposition. Often doing things differently introduces a feeling of trepidation in the team as there is perceived risk in the possibility of unknown complications. When looking at the attributes defined in Gaurav Aroraa’s post: Introduction to microservices, one attribute tends to terrify monolithic application developers: Isolated…

Building Microservices with AKS and VSTS – Part 3

We’re still working the microservice game. When we left things last time we had a service running inside a managed Kubernetes (AKS) cluster, but no apparent way to browse to it. Which is not the end-user happy state. I suggest skimming parts 1 & 2 if you haven’t done so before: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/azuredev/2018/03/27/building-microservices-with-aks-and-vsts-part-1/ https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/azuredev/2018/04/03/building-microservices-with-aks-and-vsts-part-2/ Clearly there…

Introduction to microservices

Hi all! Good day! Sometime I find theoretical learning tough for new technologies. As a developer it is easy to learn if things are explained with the help of diagrams and code. I am going to start a blog-series in the view of a developer, where I will be start blogging on microservices from theory…
