Functional Microservices with Ktor and Arrow
Reliability, correctness and resilience are the three of the most important properties of microservices. We’ll cover all you need to know about Ktor, and Arrow to leverage functional programming techniques to maximize these properties in your services.
What will you learn?
Microservices are all around us today, and with increasing requirements the importance of reliability, resilience and correctness are evermore important. Functional programming has many techniques to get the most out of language and tools to ensure these properties are met.
This course will teach you everything you need to know to build functional microservices using Ktor and Arrow in Kotlin to build maintainable, and scalable services that are a pleasure to write and work with.
We’ll build an application from end-to-end covering topics such as data validation, accessing the database, working with typed errors, protecting resources, making your services more resilient and much more.
This course will give you all the tools and insights necessary to reason about functional programming efficiently so you can leverage them to build advanced and complex use-cases in simple descriptive ways.
- Learn how to build end-to-end functional microservices
- Give you a deep understanding of how Coroutines work in Ktor
- Give you a deep understanding of Functional Programming and Arrow in Kotlin
- Explore when to use which techniques
This 2-day course dives right into how we can practically apply Arrow in our Ktor applications, and how we can use the different modules to achieve the different properties we care about. At the end of your course we’ll have built an entire microservice using Arrow and Ktor in Kotlin.
- Ktor and how to set it up
- Input validation
- Database access, and modeling errors we care about
- Protecting resources, and modeling your server
Who is it for?
This course is for everyone that has a good understanding of Kotlin, and wants to take his skills to the next level. An understanding of functional programming or Arrow is not required, but hands-on experience or knowledge of building microservices in any language or framework will be needed.
Hands-on experience with Kotlin, or basic understanding of the Kotlin language
Hands-on experience with software development
