The best way to learn microservices development is to build something! Bootstrapping Microservices with Docker, Kubernetes, and Terraform guides you from zero through to a complete microservices project, including fast prototyping, development, and deployment. You’ll get your feet wet using industry-standard tools as you learn and practice the practical skills you’ll use for every microservices application. Following a true bootstrapping approach, you’ll begin with a simple, familiar application and build up your knowledge and skills as you create and deploy a real microservices project.

About the technology
Taking microservices from proof of concept to production is a complex, multi-step operation relying on tools like Docker, Terraform, and Kubernetes for packaging and deployment. The best way to learn the process is to build a project from the ground up, and that’s exactly what you’ll do with this book!
