Cloud Native Architectures
Cloud computing has proven to be the most revolutionary IT development since virtualization. Cloud native architectures give you the benefit of more flexibility over legacy systems. To harness this, businesses need to refresh their development models and architectures when they find they don't port to the cloud. Cloud Native Architectures demonstrates three essential components of deploying modern cloud native architectures: organizational transformation, deployment modernization, and cloud native architecture patterns.
This book starts with a quick introduction to cloud native architectures that are used as a base to define and explain what cloud native architecture is and is not. You will learn what a cloud adoption framework looks like and develop cloud native architectures using microservices and serverless computing as design principles. You'll then explore the major pillars of cloud native design including scalability, cost optimization, security, and ways to ach ...
Microservices Development Cookbook
Microservices have become a popular way to build distributed systems that power modern web and mobile apps. Deploying your application as a suite of independently deployable, modular, and scalable services has many benefits. In this book, you'll learn to employ microservices in order to make your application more fault-tolerant and easier to scale and change.
Using an example-driven approach, Microservice Development Cookbook introduces you to the microservice architectural style. You'll learn how to transition from a traditional monolithic application to a suite of small services that interact to provide smooth functionality to your client applications. You'll also learn about the patterns used to organize services, so you can optimize request handling and processing and see how to handle service-to-service interactions. You'll then move on to understanding how to secure microservices and add monitoring in order to debug problems. This book also covers fault-tolerance and reliabili ...
101 UX Principles
There are countless books about designing for the web. They all give multiple routes and options to solving design challenges. Many of them are plain wrong. This has led to an entire generation of designers failing to make interfaces that are usable, software that is intuitive, and products that normal people can understand. 101 UX Principles changes that, with 101 ways to solve 101 UX problems clearly and single-mindedly.
The 101 principles are opinionated. They'll rub some designers up the wrong way, but these principles are rooted in 20 years of building for the web. They're not based on theory - they're based on practice. Simply put, they've been proven to work at scale. There's no arguing with that.
Following in the footsteps of Jakob Nielsen and Don Norman, this book is the go-to manual for UX professionals, covering everything from passwords, to planning the user journey. Build a deeper understanding of accessible design and implement tried-and-tested strateg ...

Design Patterns in C#
Get hands-on experience with each Gang of Four design pattern using C#. For each of the patterns, you'll see at least one real-world scenario, a coding example, and a complete implementation including output.
In the first part of Design Patterns in C#, you will cover the 23 Gang of Four (GoF) design patterns, before moving onto some alternative design patterns, including the Simple Factory Pattern, the Null Object Pattern, and the MVC Pattern. The final part winds up with a conclusion and criticisms of design patterns with chapters on anti-patterns and memory leaks. By working through easy-to-follow examples, you will understand the concepts in depth and have a collection of programs to port over to your own projects.

Design Patterns and Best Practices in Java
Having a knowledge of design patterns enables you, as a developer, to improve your code base, promote code reuse, and make the architecture more robust. As languages evolve, new features take time to fully understand before they are adopted en masse. The mission of this book is to ease the adoption of the latest trends and provide good practices for programmers.
We focus on showing you the practical aspects of smarter coding in Java. We'll start off by going over object-oriented (OOP) and functional programming (FP) paradigms, moving on to describe the most frequently used design patterns in their classical format and explain how Java's functional programming features are changing them.
You will learn to enhance implementations by mixing OOP and FP, and finally get to know about the reactive programming model, where FP and OOP are used in conjunction with a view to writing better code. Gradually, the book will show you the latest trends in architecture, moving from ...
