The 'microservices' architectural style has taken the software development industry by storm over the past two years. Several people are arguing that this is simply classical SOA being rebranded, while others are suggesting that creating loosely-coupled composable services is simply architectural best-practice. Join Daniel for a brief introduction to the topic of microservices, and also a tour of the nastiest sins (anti-patterns) he has seen in his journey as a consultant.
Topics covered include:
- Pride - selfishly ignoring the new requirements for testing
- Envy - introducing inappropriate intimacy within services by creating a shared domain model
- Wrath - failing to deal with the inevitable bad things that occur within a distributed system
- Sloth - composing services in a lazy fashion, which ultimately leads to the creation of a Distributed Monolith
- Lust - embracing the latest and greatest technology without evaluating the operational impact incurred by these choices
