Learn what a microservices architecture is, its advantages, and why you should consider using one when starting a new application. The book describes how taking a microservices approach from the start helps avoid the complexity and expense of moving to a service-oriented approach after applications reach a critical code base size or traffic load. Microservices from Day One discusses many of the decisions you face when adopting a service-oriented approach and defines a set of rules to follow for easily adopting microservices. The book provides simple guidelines and tips for dividing a problem domain into services. It also describes best practices for documenting and generating APIs and client libraries, testing applications with service dependencies, optimizing services for client performance, and much more. Throughout the book, you will follow the development of a sample project to see how to apply the best practices described. What You Will Learn: Apply guidelines and best practices for developing projects that use microservices Define a practical microservices architecture at the beginning of a project that allows for fast development Define and build APIs based on real-world best practices Build services that easily scale by using tools available in most programming languages Test applications in a distributed environment Who This Book is For: Software engineers and web developers who have heard about microservices, and want to either move the project/applications they work on to a service-oriented environment, or want to start a new project knowing that building services helps with ease of scaling and maintainability. The book is a reference for developers who have a desire to build software in smaller, more focused and manageable chunks, but do not know how to get started. Cloves Carneiro Jr has been writing software since 1997. His career in tech has been separated into two parts: Java and Ruby. In his early days as a software developer, Cloves built web applications for large telecommunication companies, such as Manitoba Telecommunications(MTS), AMCTV, We.tv, News12, and SportSkool using Java frameworks, including Struts, Webwork and Spring. He has moved to the Ruby camp since 2006, and has enjoyed working full-time with Ruby/Rails, he has worked as a consultant, and as an employee for Unspace and Amazon. Cloves wrote a couple of Ruby on Rails books, Beginning Rails and Beginning Rails 3 for Apress. He is currently based in South Florida, and works as a Software Engineer for LivingSocial. After abandoning his childhood dream of becoming an actual firefighter, Tim Schmelmer did the next best thing and became a software developer. He has spent the past 18 years extinguishing fires while working for technology consulting companies, telecommunications equipment manufacturers, building control systems for research telescopes, and selling things to people via a Web browser and mobile apps. Tim found his love for Ruby while building microservices systems at Amazon, and he is currently working on a team that does surprisingly little firefighting while building and maintaining LivingSocials core services platform. When he is not hacking away on his keyboard, or trying to be a good husband and father of two girls. Tim loves to run, bike, and hike in the mountains near beautiful Boulder, Colorado.
Solar energy is a formidable resource. Solar electric power systems, based on PV panels, make effective power supplies for your off-grid electricity needs. The sun distributes over 1,000 watts per square meter at peak and is the natural power supply for life on Earth. The sun, can also be your power supply. The best kept industrial secret is that we don´t need to burn fossil fuels for industrial power. Solar PV panels, true 21st century tools, can provide daily energy production that can be used directly, or stored for later use, on demand, to power your remote electric loads onsite - with no pollution or fuel costs. This book is a resource for building your own solar PV supply for remote cameras, LED lighting systems, communication, sensors, and remote cabin and home power systems with solar PV power system examples. The solar energy resource varies with time of day, season, and local climate. Solar PV panels, sized properly, produce reliable and predictable energy production, despite daily variations, when calculated properly for each month. Tap into PV panels to charge battery banks for reliable DC, and, with inverters, AC power on demand. Remote site power supplies, designed and installed properly, offer real power for running a variety of electronic, motor, and large draw devices. Use this audiobook to match your energy load with the energy production sized to match your electric loads for remote solar PV power. System examples range from 30-watt solar PV power supplies for cameras, electronics, and sensors, to 4,000-watt home power systems. Language: English. Narrator: Dennis E. Morris.
