Building a Serverless IoT Backend Integration

Having a lightweight protocol which delivers messages over low bandwidth or unreliable networks is the foundation for a system that can facilitate the transports of data in near real time.

MQTT is one such protocol which designed to overcome following limitations:

Deploy Friday EP — 16 Micronaut: A Modern Full-Stack Framework for Building Microservice and Serverless

A Question and Answer session with guests: 

Micronaut is an open-source, JVM-based framework for building full-stack, modular, easily testable microservice and serverless applications. Unlike reflection-based IoC frameworks that load and cache reflection data for every single field, method, and constructor in your code, with Micronaut, your application startup time and memory consumption are not bound to the size of your codebase. Micronaut’s cloud support is built right in, including support for common discovery services, distributed tracing tools, and cloud runtimes.

Serverless Is Taking Off: Here’s Why It’s Worth Hopping On

Just a couple of years ago, serverless was a sparsely used technology, recognized mostly for its cost-efficiency. Today, we’re seeing a radical shift in the attitude towards serverless. Developers have begun to realize that serverless not only minimizes operational overhead but can considerably enhance core applications in production. As cloud vendors continue to develop their serverless offerings, serverless is being used in production more than ever before.

In this blog post, we explain what serverless is, dive into some of its major advantages, and point out some factors contributing to its growing popularity.

Developing Spring Boot Applications with In-Memory Database

I am a big fan of in-memory computing and Apache Ignite is one my favorite platform for developing high-performance backend applications. Recently, the Apache Ignite team announced a new extension for developing a Spring Boot application with the Ignite database. The full documentation of the extension is available here

The main purpose of the extension is to integrate Ignite into Spring Boot application with minimal configuration. This autoconfigure module serves in two different flavors:

Event Sourcing in .NET Core: A Gentle Introduction

Event sourcing, aka "the great myth". I’ve been thinking about writing a series of articles about this for a while, and now it’s time to put my hands back on the keyboard. 

I thought that with this long period of confinement at least I could have had more time to write some nice articles, but it turns out the reality has been slightly different so far.

Health Checks with ASP.NET Core and Kubernetes

Health checks are a fundamental part of our APIs. I guess they fall in that category of "non-functional-but-heavily-required" things. More or less like a good part of the infrastructure code.

They don’t add business value per se but have an enormous impact for those in IT, like DDD and design patterns. You can normally see them in conjunction with container orchestration or monitoring tools to ensure that the system is alive and kicking.

Rethinking Serverless Architectures With Eventbridge

Here’s the context of how the need for AWS Eventbridge came to be.

As the march of technology is never-ending, the only constant we can expect is change. This is especially true considering the strides that serverless has made in the industry, especially with the release of the AWS Lambda back in 2014. Upon its release, AWS Lambda was quick to take front and center position in the FaaS services making up the core of serverless applications. It was rightly heralded as one of the most important releases within the domain. This further lead to an array of best practices dictating how applications were built using FaaS services achieving serverless capabilities.

However, as the course of technology meanders in its ongoing path, new innovations are constantly redefining the way we build applications. One such innovative service announced this year was AWS EventBridge, and its release has since caused an uproar in the domain of serverless. Many blogs and posts within the community that followed the announcement characterized it as the most important announcement after the release of AWS Lambda.
