About the ebook

Microservices architecture is the new standard for building applications. Converting your apps to a microservices approach makes them more flexible, more stable, and far faster and easier to update. However, it’s not always obvious how to transition traditional, monolithic applications to microservices. Microservices examples and frank discussions of architectural choices are few and far between.

The seven‑part series on microservices development published in the NGINX blog provided many of the answers. It also served to introduce the robust microservices framework contained in the NGINX Microservices Reference Architecture. Now, we have created an ebook that combines these blog posts with information on how to use NGINX Plus in building microservices apps.
