Microservice architecture

Microservices are the hype right now and what everyone talks about. Microservices are an architectural and organizational approach to software development where software is composed of small independent services that communicate over well-defined APIs. These services are owned by small, self-contained teams. Microservices architectures make applications easier to scale and faster to develop, enabling innovation and accelerating time-to-market for new features. This is a commonly used solution for medium to large projects. While there are many benefits with microservices, there are also drawbacks because you enter the domain of distributed systems.

Throughout the series I will cover few common topics and I hope to help you make some informed decisions going forward:

  1. When microservices are not for you
  2. When microservices are a good fit
  3. Microservices for new projects
  4. Monolith to microservices
  5. Common pitfalls when doing microservices
