Microservices with Dapr

English Intermediate Other

Microservice architectures enable rapid, frequent and reliable delivery of large, complex applications by structuring them as a collection of loosely coupled, independently deployable, highly maintainable and testable services. While it is one of the most used patterns in modern cloud-native solutions, it does add a considerable amount of complexity to the solutions, especially as the number of services starts to grow. This is where dapr comes in. The Distributed Application Runtime helps reduce the complexity of distributed microservice applications by introducing a set of building blocks that encapsulate distributed infrastructure capabilities, such as secret management, inter-service communication, observability, state management, pub/sub and more. In this session we will discuss in detail what dapr is and how it can be used to build microservice-based applications.
