You may have joined Peter and Chris in some of their previous episodes such as the API Economy, The Backends for Frontends & Strangler Pattern, or The Anti-Corruption Layer, Gateway Aggregation and Gateway Routing patterns. They'll will be continuing our journey talking about API Cloud Design Patterns, as they talk about the Gatekeeper and Valet Key Patterns in this episode of Cloud with Chris. This is another episode in the series of Architecting for the Cloud, one pattern at a time.

Do you have a website that is made up mostly of Static Content (e.g. HTML, JavaScript, CSS, Images)? Interested how you can optimise for performance and cost savings as well? Then join this episode as we talk through the Cloud Design Pattern, “The Static Content Hosting Pattern”. This is another episode in the series of Architecting for the Cloud, one pattern at a time. at a time.

Do you have an application with some specific requirements around scalability, and continuity of service? What happens if your service is hit by heavy load? Could performance/reliability issues cause an impact to your solution? This is where both the queue-based load leveling and competing consumers patterns shine. Tune in and listen to Chris speak with Will Eastbury as they discuss both of these patterns. This is another episode in the series of Architecting for the Cloud, one pattern at a time.

You've heard Peter and Chris talk about The Facade pattern previously. These patterns build upon the Façade concept. The façade layer could be used to translate requests between various subsystems, aggregate multiple backend requests into a single response and offload specialised functionality to a gateway proxy. Tune in and listen to Peter Piper join Chris Reddington, as they discuss The Anti-corruption layer, Gateway Aggregation and Gateway Routing patterns! This is another episode in the series of Architecting for the Cloud, one pattern at a time.

The event sourcing pattern is a well-known pattern and has been around for some time. The idea is that you use an append-only store to record the full series of actions taken on the data. This combines well with the materialized view pattern, where a pre-populated view is generated over one (or more) data stores when the data isn't in an ideal format for querying. These two patterns are common patterns used in an event-driven architecture. Join Chris and Steph as they talk about both of these patterns and how they may be able to help. This is another episode in the series of Architecting for the Cloud, one pattern at a time.

You may have heard of patterns like the retry pattern, circuit breaker, CQRS or bulkhead. But have you heard about the Geode pattern? Join Chris and Will Eastbury in this session as they talk through how this pattern can help improve latency and increase availability for your application.

Have you tried Flight Simulator 2020 and been impressed by how well it maps to the real world? Joined other users in the simulator on a journey and encountered other ‘live’ aircrafts, or changing weather conditions? This is powered by the Cloud! Join Chris and Cam as they embark on a journey of discovery, and a quick lap around the skies…

How are you thinking about handling load on your application, scaling out perhaps? But what about if you're building a multi-tenant service and worried about safeguarding resources on a per tenant basis? What happens if there's a temporary blip, and there are issues that impact the stability of the application? Then tune in to this episode where Chris is joined by John Downs, talking about the Throttling, Retry and Circuit Breaker Patterns. This is another episode in the series of Architecting for the Cloud, one pattern at a time.

Developing applications for new platforms, and struggling to manage your API estate? Finding you have to refactor, or in a scenario where your code isn't clean? Want to decouple your backend APIs from your clients, and figure out how you can move from a legacy set of APIs to modern APIs? Then tune in and listen to Peter Piper join Chris Reddington, as they discuss the Backend for Frontends and Strangler Pattern, with an honourable mention to the Façade pattern as well! This is another episode in the series of Architecting for the Cloud, one pattern at a time.
