In this talk Peter Rodgers will discuss how you can learn important lessons from long standing experience of resource oriented architectures and shows how it is possible to tap the power of dedicated resource engines to deliver loosely coupled composite microservices.
Breaking down the monolith into microservices is a good thing. It lets you decouple the rates of change of our system, assign individual accountability, apply selective and appropriate scaling. But business isn't about atoms. Its about molecules. The value of combining two or more services together on-demand often delivers key business value that is greater than the sum of the parts. If you start writing lots of glue code to put these composites together we start to rebuild the monolith - surely that's not what was supposed to happen...
