Advantages of Using a Mock API to Accelerate Development

Mocking APIs is an increasingly popular trend, with more and more developers seeing the advantages of mocking dependencies rather than spinning up actual duplicates of resources. On a high-level, a mock API means that you have a service that returns static data, which in turn is based on a real API.

How to Test Microservices in Kubernetes

In this article, you will learn about some of the tools to test microservices running in a Kubernetes cluster. In particular, we will compare the Speedscale CLI tool with other tools and the main benefits of using Speedscale CLI. In the last few years, software companies have been shifting from building monolith applications to utilizing smaller microservices. In a microservices architecture, you operate with decentralized applications. This means that there's a separation in which each service is responsible for a specific component of your application.

Continuous Performance Testing in CI Pipelines: CircleCI

With over 50,000 active organizations and 250 million workflows, CircleCI is one of the most popular networked CI platforms. When getting started with CI pipelines, teams typically want to ensure that code will compile, pass unit tests, and build a container image. After catching these low hanging fruit of syntax errors, engineering teams need to dig much further to find business logic and scalability errors.

Using gRPC with Golang

In this tutorial, you will learn how to work with the gRPC Golang library for microservice communication by creating a simple note-taking application. APIs and service-to-service communication are what make modern microservice architecture possible. REST is generally the preferred implementation pattern, but if you only use REST, you could miss out on the significant performance gains that gRPC can offer. gRPC can provide better speed and efficiency than REST APIs.
