- [Frank] In a microservices architecture we usually are dealing with RESTful calls between autonomous services in order to execute actions across our systems. However, there is another way to handle communications in a microservices architecture, and that is through asynchronous messaging. Oftentimes, when you're working with large-scale deployments of systems, you need to define a way to get real work done, often behind the scenes, and always with minimal strain on the day-to-day operations of the system as a whole. Here, we begin the journey of asynchronous communications to get work done, and most often this is accomplished through messaging. Hi, my name is Frank Moley. I am a developer, architect, teacher, and student, who has been active in cloud data development and architectures for some time now. I have helped build large multi-data center, and multi-cloud systems that were often asynchronous messaging patterns have been used to keep the system at peak shape as well as compliant with all legal regulations. In this course, I want to share with you why there is more to microservices architectures than just RESTful API calls over HTTP. And, how understanding asynchronous messaging can often improve your efficiencies at getting work done.
