Through REST we understand that the Web is a Resource Oriented Architecture. So perhaps we should think of microservices in terms of "microresources"?
In this talk we will introduce Resource Oriented Computing, a general abstraction for software in which "everything is a resource". ROC solutions are built by composing resources from service endpoints located in "microweb" spaces.
Evolvable highly scaled, ultra-high performance solutions are created by the scale-invariant composition of "microwebs". Resources all the way down, or if you prefer, micro-, nano-, femto-services all the way down...
Peter Rodgers is the architect of NetKernel and the father of Resource Oriented Computing.
