Discussion on: Microservices, what is it not, and what is it?

Read the book "Righting Software" by Juval Löwy for all the answers to questions about micro-services. Or writing software in general actually.

The author knows more about micro-services than anyone else. He was working on the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) in 2007. At a time when nobody even thought about micro-services. This platform enables developers the implementation of micro-services in the way they are supposed to be build. Already in 2007!!

He explains in the book why software fails, how to avoid the common pitfalls and how proper system development can not go without a proper project approach (vs Agile). Even if you will not agree with him, it is still a profound read.
