Many organizations—especially engineering-led ones—are embracing microservices and DevOps as a mechanism for handing autonomy to developers across the life-cycle, from language, framework, and platform technology choices in the development phase to monitoring and management technologies when things move to production.
While this is a great recipe for developer motivation, it can lead to problems in running the production estate over the longer term as a lack of consistency hampers on-boarding and the effectiveness of first-responder teams, who are responsible for the overall availability and incident management that development teams move on.
Pete Holditch explores how various organizations have combined microservice-based development with DevOps and outlines the various pitfalls and trade-offs this entails.
