What you'll learn

  • Understand the key factors to consider before you adopt microservices
  • Explore one team's journey to shipping a microservices application


Welcome to the wonderful world of building a microservices application. If you are a developer, architect, or product owner who wants a preview of what you may encounter as you embark on building an application with a microservices architecture, what better way than to gain a perspective from a team that recently released a microservices application.

Anthony Moralez offers a retrospective of a microservices application that his team built over the past year. You’ll explore all of the key decision points and learn why the team chose the routes they did and why they might not choose them again if given a second chance.
