Book:Building Microservices with .NET Core 2.0 – Second Edition

After the warm success, great love from readers to Building Microservices with .NET Core and a great demand I started writing a second version after more than 3-months hard-work its up and available for readers.

Building Microservices with .NET Core 2.0 - Second Edition

This book is written in such a way so you can Architect your .NET applications by breaking them into really small pieces with the help of practical/examples.

Book writing is not an easy job, as it takes time a lot of time. Sometimes, it needs your personal/family time. So, I want to thank all who motivated me and allowed me to spend time with this book, which I was supposed to spend with them. My first thank you goes to my wife, Shuby Arora, for her constant support throughout. Then, I would like to thank my angel, Aarchi Arora. I would also like to thank the entire Packt team, especially Vikas Tiwari, Jash Bavishi, Diwakar Shukla, Ulhas Kambale, and Denim Pinto for their overnight support. Without the technical reviewer, it’s hard to make the content appealing to the readers. So, I would like to thank Jeffrey Chilberto whose precise and to-the-point reviews enriched the book’s content. I would also like to thank the entire MVP community,
especially Deepak Rajendra – Indian MVP Lead. His words and support further fuelled my desire to write this book. A special thanks to Shivprasad Koirala, who guided me from time to time at various junctures of writing this book. Thanks to the TechNet Wiki community, the Azure community, and to all the lovely folks: Ronen, Kamlesh, Arlan, Syed, Peter Geelen, Pedro aka Pete Laker, and all other champs. Thanks to my friends who motivated me: Chandershekhar Thota, Kanwwar Manish, Ram Nath Rao, Lalit Kale, Pooja (the champ), and Tadit (the bug trapper).

Finally, a hearty thanks to Ed Price for his in-depth knowledge and his suggestions to improve the various sections of this book.

Your feedback is very important that help me to understand & help me to improve contents (if any) further.

What I get during this journey?

  • No doubt, more in-depth learning on the subject
  • Friends from PACKT
  • necessity is the mother of invention, during this book, I did not find any way to describe/test Consumer driven contract in .NET Core, hence came to conclusion and started open source project Pact net core.
  • Started a knowledge portal on Microservices right way.

Thanks for giving your time and joining me!
