Microservices is an architectural style that structures an application as a collection of loosely coupled services, which implement business capabilities. The microservice architecture enables the continuous delivery/deployment of large, complex applications and also enables an organization to evolve its technology stack. However, it is not a silver bullet and has several drawbacks, especially from its own distributed nature.
In this Tech Talk, we will start by giving you an overview of microservices, its pros and cons in comparison to monolithic architecture, and then walk you through the challenging yet interesting experiences of refactoring existing monolithic architecture into microservices at MessageMedia and Ansarada from different perspectives.
Join us at the most exciting and informative meetup in HCMC, listen to our experts, and expand your network within the community.
