As the popularity of microservices continues to rise, so do the horror stories. How can a company with the best developers and cutting-edge tooling, fail?

Drawing on her experience helping customers move from monolithic applications to microservices, CJ Johnson explains how an absence of social management can wreak havoc during a transition and what you can do to avoid these traps, narrowing in on the behaviors, the mindset, and the messaging necessary to effect a cultural shift across an organization. You’ll leave better prepared to avoid common pitfalls.
