Welcome to the book Cloud Native Development Patterns and Best Practices. This book will help you along your cloud-native journey. I have personally found delivering cloud-native solutions to be, by far, the most fun and satisfying. This is because cloud-native is more than just optimizing for the cloud. It is an entirely different
way of thinking and reasoning about software systems. Cloud-native enables companies to rapidly and continuously deliver innovation with confidence. It empowers everyday teams to build massive-scale systems with much less effort than ever before.
In this book, you will learn modern patterns such as Event Sourcing, CQRS, Data Lake, and Backend For Frontend, but with a cloud-native twist. You will leverage value-added cloud services to build reactive cloud-native systems that turn the database inside-out and ultimately turn the cloud into the database. Your team will build confidence in its ability to deliver because your cloud-native system is composed of bounded isolated components with proper bulkheads based on asynchronous, message-driven inter-component communication and data replication. You will learn how to build cloud-native systems that are responsive, resilient, elastic, and global.
