First off, looking forward to reading through rest of this book. From what I have seen so far it's just what I have been looking for. Some of the technologies I use daily, others I have experimented with and have been looking for a means of consolidating my understanding and application.

The reason for this post is to enquire about the Git repositories and how they should be used. I made the mistake (possibly) of cloning the repository referenced on p36 of v1 MEAP ( and it sucked down 140Mb of, hmmm not much really! Okay, I put this down to lack of GitHub foo on my part and move on as there are links on said repository's to the sub-chapter repositories. All good, let's grab Chapter 2 me thinks (want to look at actual POM). Ooops, that link's a wrongun!

I know the forum asks us not to post typo's, I respect that, but this one is a link in your index at the entrypoint on GitHub, remorse is fading:

BAD (line 17):
[Chapter 2 Introduction to Microservices] (

BETTER (line 17):
[Chapter 2 Introduction to Microservices] (

Well I found what I was looking for and could have overlooked this, sorry smilie, but I take it GitHub is going to be the source of truth as you progress with the book.

Best of luck, look forward to future instalments.

Hi Moorlie,

Thanks for catching this. I do deserved to be flogged for this. I mean that. A couple of months ago I complete restructured my code in github. I originally had everything under one git hub repo (the entire book). It ended up being a massive build everytime I committed changes and Travis CI built. Hence the bad link.

I will get these cleaned up right away.
