Microservices with Spring Boot & Spring Cloud


Spring Boot extends Spring framework by making it easy to set up and configure new projects. Intended specifically for distributed architectures such as microservices, Spring Cloud provides ready-to-use solutions for common problems such as configuration management, service discovery, circuit breakers, intelligent routing, micro-proxy, control bus, one-time tokens, global locks, leadership election, distributed sessions and cluster-state. Spring Boot & Cloud is an ideal combination for the creation of microservices architectures in Java-based environments.

This Code.Learn Microservices with Spring Boot & Spring Cloud program, designed in exclusive collaboration by Athens Tech College, provides a solid and to-the-point introduction to Microservice design and development with Spring framework, Spring Boot and Spring Cloud. Participants will be taught how to use Spring to easily implement functionalities like dynamic scaling, load balancing, dispatching, centralized configuration and resiliency. By the end of this course, participants will have gained all the necessary knowledge to build microservices using the best practices and minimizing development time by maximizing their use of Spring’s resources.
