Step1. Setting up the environment

Before we can start writing-up some microservices, we’ll need to install a few mandatory prerequisites.

Docker, Docker Composer and Powershell

To install Docker, download the Docker Desktop installer that corresponds to the operating system you’re using from the official Docker site. Once downloaded, launch the installer and follow the installation instructions.

Once installed, check that the installation was completed successfully by running the following commands from your console:

docker --version

If everything was installed successfully, the screen will display the latest version of Docker.

Now, we need to install Docker Compose. To do this, follow the instructions given here.

Lastly, we need to install Powershell. The instructions to install this tool are available here

Now that we’ve got the environment set up, we can move on to Step 2. Setting up the project.
