Cloud Foundry has been growing recently and is predicted to be the leading platform providing PaaS. Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) is a leading, self-install cloud platform and a Platform-as-a-Service offering from Pivotal. Organizations have adopted PCF because it acts as an abstraction layer on public and private cloud IaaS providers, increasing business agility and time-to-market of software products. So, if you're a web developer who wants to develop and deploy applications, web services, and microservices on Pivotal Cloud Foundry, then go for this Learning Path.
Packt’s Video Learning Path is a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.
The highlights of this Learning Path are:
● Gain hands-on experience of using Cloud Foundry in production
● Deploy, manage, and scale applications in your cloud
● Implement the circuit breaker pattern using Netflix OSS Hystrix
Let's take a quick look at your learning journey. This Learning Path starts off by showing you the steps involved in making your application cloud-ready. You will then delve into the various aspects involved in deploying your application and running it on Cloud Foundry. You will also understand how Spring Boot and PCF tremendously increase developers productivity.
Next, you will learn to tackle the core challenges faced while developing PCF applications. You will learn how to quickly deploy various microservices to PCF, including REST web services and event-driven applications. You will also learn how to develop a web service application and deploy it on PCF.
Moving ahead, you will delve deeply into more advanced topics such as integrating apps with the circuit-breaker dashboard, the cloud discovery server, and the config server. You will explore highly-available PCF deployment models, as well as continuous integration with Jenkins. You will then explore the theory behind Hystrix and the circuit breaker pattern. Next, you will learn patterns for config repositories and the config server. Finally, you will be glanced through container-to-container networking and security, common security pain points in PCF, and route and volume services.
After the completion of this Learning Path, you will be able to develop and deploy applications, web services, and microservices on Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
