Consul deployment patterns – A brief overview

While delving into service mesh, key-value store, or a service discovery solution in cloud-native space, you would have definitely come across Consul. Consul, developed by HashiCorp is a multi-purpose solution which primarily provides the following features:

  • Service discovery and Service Mesh features with Kubernetes
  • Secure communication and observability between the services
  • Automate load-balancing
  • Key-Value store
  • Consul watches

This blog post briefly explains what are the deployment patterns for the Consul to watch configuration changes stored in the Key-Value store. It will explain how to discover and synchronize with the services running out of the Kubernetes cluster.

Consul Deployment Patterns: A Brief Overview

We provide some insights into deploying HashiCorp’s Consul cloud solution for monitoring Key-Value changes, Hybrid Workloads, and Service Mesh.

If you’ve ever delved into a service mesh, key-value store, or service discovery solution in the cloud-native space, you have definitely come across Consul. Consul, developed by HashiCorp, is a multi-purpose solution which primarily provides the following features:

  • Service discovery and Service Mesh features with Kubernetes.
  • Secure communication and observability between the services.
  • Automate load-balancing.
  • Key-Value store.
  • Consul watches.

This blog post briefly explains the deployment patterns for Consul to use when making configuration changes that are stored in the Key-Value store. It will explain how to discover and synchronize with the services running out of the Kubernetes cluster. We will also see how to enable Service Mesh features with Consul. We broadly categorize Consul deployment patterns as in-cluster patterns (Consul deployed in a Kubernetes cluster) and hybrid patterns (Consul deployed outside a Kubernetes cluster).

10 Writing steps to create a good project brief - Mobile app development

Developing a mobile application can often be more challenging than it seems at first glance. Whether you’re a developer, UI designer, project lead or CEO of a mobile-based startup, writing good project briefs prior to development is pivotal. According to Tech Jury, 87% of smartphone users spend time exclusively on mobile apps, with 18-24-year-olds spending 66% of total digital time on mobile apps. Of that, 89% of the time is spent on just 18 apps depending on individual users’ preferences, making proper app planning crucial for success.

Today’s audiences know what they want and don’t want in their mobile apps, encouraging teams to carefully write their project plans before they approach development. But how do you properly write a mobile app development brief without sacrificing your vision and staying within the initial budget? Why should you do so in the first place? Let’s discuss that and more in greater detail.

Why a Good Mobile App Project Brief Matters?

Why-a-Good-Mobile-App-Project-Brief-Matters

It’s worth discussing the significance of mobile app project briefs before we tackle the writing process itself. In practice, a project brief is used as a reference tool for developers to remain focused on the client’s deliverables. Approaching the development process without written and approved documentation can lead to drastic, last-minute changes, misunderstanding, as well as a loss of resources and brand reputation.

For example, developing a mobile app that filters restaurants based on food type, such as Happy Cow, means that developers should stay focused on it. Knowing that such and such features, UI elements, and API are necessary will help team members collaborate better in order to meet certain expectations. Whether you develop an app under your brand’s banner or outsource coding and design services to would-be clients, briefs can provide you with several benefits:

  • Clarity on what your mobile app project “is” and “isn’t” early in development
  • Point of reference for developers, project leads, and clients throughout the cycle
  • Smart allocation of available time and resources based on objective development criteria
  • Streamlined project data storage for further app updates and iterations

Writing Steps to Create a Good Mobile App Project Brief

1. Establish the “You” Behind the App

Depending on how “open” your project is to the public, you will want to write a detailed section about who the developers are. Elements such as company name, address, project lead, project title, as well as contact information, should be included in this introductory segment. Regardless of whether you build an in-house app or outsource developers to a client, this section is used for easy document storage and access.

Overview Of Prototype Desing Pattern

What is Prototype Design pattern?

prototypes design pattern allows you to create objects by cloning an existing object instead of creating a new object from scratch. This pattern is used when the process of object creation is costly. when cloning, the newly copied object contains the same characteristics as its source object. After cloning, we can change the values of the new object’s properties as required. This pattern comes under a **creational **pattern.

For easier understanding, Assume that a database operation should be done in order to create an object. This database call is both time-consuming and costly. we need to create multiple objects. As a result, when we create a new object, each time a database call will occur, this will give a performance flop, right? As a result, initially, we create one object and clone it each time when we required a new object. This will cut down the database calls for each object creation.

Builder Design Pattern

What is Builder Design Pattern ? Why we should care about it ?

Starting from **Creational Design Pattern, **so wikipedia says “creational design pattern are design pattern that deals with object creation mechanism, trying to create objects in manner that is suitable to the situation”.

The basic form of object creations could result in design problems and result in complex design problems, so to overcome this problem Creational Design Pattern somehow allows you to create the object.

Builder is one of the** Creational Design Pattern**.

When to consider the Builder Design Pattern ?

Builder is useful when you need to do lot of things to build an Object. Let’s imagine DOM (Document Object Model), so if we need to create the DOM, We could have to do lot of things, appending plenty of nodes and attaching attributes to them. We could also imagine about the huge XML Object creation where we will have to do lot of work to create the Object. A Factory is used basically when we could create the entire object in one shot.

As **Joshua Bloch (**He led the Design of the many library Java Collections Framework and many more) – “Builder Pattern is good choice when designing the class whose constructor or static factories would have more than handful of parameters
