I recently interviewed Sam Newman, author of Building Microservices, and James Gregory, Thoughtworks Australia's technical market principal, on deploying and operating microservices. This is a topic that has grown exponentially in conversation over the last year as the technical community explores new ways in which we can evolve with pace in this digital economy.
The era of large, slow moving, monolithic systems is ending, and the number of organisations investing in finer-grained systems consisting of collaborating microservices continues to increase. This new service-oriented architecture allows organisations to release features quicker, test new technologies with less risk, and respond to changing business environments faster. But employing microservices is not without challenges.
We addressed some of these challenges in a Google Hangout that you can view below.
