Develop production-ready, high-performance, and scalable microservices with Go

Key Features
● Learn to design and implement resilient RESTful APIs using Go, with a focus on scalability and maintainability.
● Discover how Kubernetes empowers reliable microservice architecture, covering deployment, scaling, service discovery, and load balancing.
● Gain practical tools and insights for deploying microservices to production using Go and Kubernetes, ensuring smooth operations and high availability.

Book Description
Embark on a comprehensive journey through microservices architecture with a focus on harnessing the power of Go in modern cloud-based solutions.

This book begins with a succinct introduction to microservices and their synergy with cloud strategies, emphasizing Go's aptitude for developing scalable and efficient services. You'll then delve into the fundamentals of Go, covering essential practices and core concepts, establishing a strong language foundation.

The exploration continues with a detailed examination of constructing a single service, emphasizing design, documentation, and structure. Through various design patterns, you'll learn to implement a server capable of serving as a RESTful API, an internal worker, and more. This hands-on approach equips you with the expertise to craft robust and sustainable services.

Finally, the book guides you through deploying your service to production using Kubernetes. You'll explore scaling techniques, performance optimization, and observability, ensuring your service is ready for the demands of the real world.
