Session: Hooked on HTTP/2: Microservices development with gRPC
Mandy about her session: “gRPC is a language-neutral, platform-neutral RPC framework and toolset which is based on the finalized HTTP/2 standard and developed and open sourced by Google. It can be used to build highly performant, scalable APIs by allowing developers to define services using a powerful binary serialization toolset and language called Protocol Buffers. It can also be used to generate idiomatic client and server stubs from service definitions written in a variety of languages. In this session you’ll learn all about gRPC and how it benefits from being based on HTTP/2 and through the use of a working demo and detailed code examples you’ll learn how to build gRPC enabled microservices and clients.”
