The microservices architecture is far from a new trend; it's generally accepted as a better way to build apps these days. The common way to build apps was, until a few years ago, the monolithic approach—which was, if you look at it from a functional perspective, basically one deployment unit that does everything. Monolithic apps are good for small scale teams and projects, but when you need something that has a larger scale and involves many teams, it starts to become problematic. It's much harder to make changes, as the code base becomes bigger and more people make changes to it.read more

Let’s face it, if you’re a viewer of the TV show or a reader of the books or both, you’ve probably thought you could do much better than the characters in the story, right?
