Spring Boot - How To Get Started and Build a Microservice


Learn to build your first Spring Boot application with an actionable and hands-on approach.

The book is highly specialized in helping you to write your first real world Spring Boot application; actionable and focused. I left the fluff out and stayed on track, so you get the most benefit out of it. It is specific in guiding you to your first real world Spring Boot app. I am not telling you the origins of Java (which typically make 1/4 of a book), nor am I writing a bit about everything and nothing.

Together we build a real application, and I will explain you the steps and libraries involved on the go.

You learn best by coding.
