Recently, I was excited to buy an Apple M1 MacBook: lots of cores and memory. I couldn’t wait to start using it for development so I tried running the Eventuate Tram Customers and Orders example application, which illustrates how to use the Sagas and CQRS patterns to implement operations that span multiple services. Sadly, running this application on my shiny new MacBook wasn’t straightforward due to problems running Docker containers.
In this series of articles, I describe what I learned solving one of the problems with developing on Arm: building multi-architecture Docker images that support Intel and Arm. I show how I enhanced a simple projects that runs PlantUML, which is an incredibly useful UML diagramming tool, as a Docker container. The end result is a CircleCI pipeline that publishes a multi-architecture Docker image that runs on both Intel and Arm.
Here are the articles:
In later articles, I’ll describe enhancing the Eventuate platform to support Arm.
Microservices.io is brought to you by Chris Richardson. Experienced software architect, author of POJOs in Action, the creator of the original CloudFoundry.com, and the author of Microservices patterns.
Chris helps clients around the world adopt the microservice architecture through consulting engagements, and training classes and workshops.
In June, I’ll be teaching a public microservices workshopover Zoom in an APAC-friendly (GMT+9) timezone.
Take a look at my Manning LiveProject that teaches you how to develop a service template and microservice chassis.
My virtual bootcamp, distributed data patterns in a microservice architecture, is now open for enrollment!
It covers the key distributed data management patterns including Saga, API Composition, and CQRS.
It consists of video lectures, code labs, and a weekly ask-me-anything video conference repeated in multiple timezones.
The regular price is $395/person but use coupon YXEERWTJ to sign up for $195 (valid until May 26th, 2022). There are deeper discounts for buying multiple seats.
Chris offers numerous resources for learning the microservice architecture.
Chris teaches comprehensive workshops, training classes and bootcamps for executives, architects and developers to help your organization use microservices effectively.
Avoid the pitfalls of adopting microservices and learn essential topics, such as service decomposition and design and how to refactor a monolith to microservices.
Delivered in-person and remotely.
