Because the course focuses on microservice properties and design no particular programming language expertise is required though participants should have experience with at least one programming language. Each participant will be required to run a 64 bit virtual machine (provided with the course).
This intensive two day course is designed to provide working developers, devops staff and other technology professionals with a comprehensive introduction to the gRPC remote procedure call platform and the Protocol Buffers (PB) serialization system. Participants will leave with a clear understanding of gRPC and how to build high performance microservices using the gRPC tool chain. Lab sessions will give participants hands-on experience building gRPC based microservices in a polyglot, cross platform setting. The course covers the API evolution features provided by the IDL based gRPC/PB stack as well as plugin and extension points available.
This course is designed for Developers, Architects, Engineering Managers and DevOps personnel.
Upon completion of this course, participants will have the skills and information necessary to begin designing and working with gRPC based microservices in a production setting
