Guided Demonstration: Building a gRPC application in Ruby
I would be very grateful for feedback on the content and writing, as well as link sharing to promote readership.
Why am I writing a gRPC + Ruby tutorial? As users here well know, Ruby has excellent libraries and frameworks. I have found that Ruby users are uncomfortable using a non-REST oriented framework, citing the availability and excellence of Rails, Sinatra, Grape, etc. My answer is that gRPC promotes distributed, structured design considerations up-front. As the software industry gets pulled in the direction of “serverless” deployments and Kubernetes fleets – many of which already have first class gRPC support infrastructure – the Ruby community will benefit from better understanding of the gRPC tool-chain and its patterns.
