Building scalable mobile API’s

A couple of weeks ago on the 23rd of September, I gave a talk at DVT as part of their tech month meet-ups. The talk went into how we could take a ktor-based mobile API, wrap it up in gRPC for our other ktor api-based services, and get the app live using Hashicorp’s products Nomad and Consul, then serving them using Fabio, a zero-conf load balancer for Hashicorp’s consul that works really well.

As much as I wanted to go into the code and the way everything was implemented I couldn’t, as time was a bit short on my side. What I will do however is probably publish a series of blog posts that go into each part in detail. Watch this space

In the meantime, you can check out the talk to wet your appetite here:
