Every company has, usually, a single service to handle images that allows people to get easy access to them. Microservices aren’t a new thing, but now it’s an hot topic (although I won’t discuss about the advantages of using microservices in this post, I think this is a must read.) – and that’s why I have decided to create a microservice to store images into the file system, and called it ImaUp. Continue reading NodeJs + Microservices = ImaUp
In this post I will show how I organize my node.js applications. I’ll start explaning the nodejs principles, with examples.
NodeJs follows the next principles:
- “Small is beautiful”
- “Make each program do one thing well”
Keep It Simple, Stupid (KISS) principle.
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Leonardo da Vinci
I think I already gave the idea of the way to structuring a node application. Creating microservices to do specific work, separating the complexity and decoupling the responsibilities.
One of the biggest problems that people have with Nodejs is the maintainability of the application. That’s the reason why is better to have 3 different micro applications than a big one.
In this post i will explain how to integrate Jenkins with Nodejs.
Why Jenkis? Because it’s the most popular CI.
What is Jenkins?
Jenkins is a continuous integration application. The main features are:
- Building/testing software projects continuously
- Monitoring executions of externally-run jobs

- Easy to learn
- Open Source
- Good Documentation & Tutorials
- Plugins for everything
- 404: Not Found
I started developing in Node Js 8 months ago and at the beginning I wish to know everything that I know today. With this post I want to share some tips and good practices that I learned.
