Hey DEV community,
As I'm getting closer to my June 28, 2020 deadline to release my book, Cloud Native Web Development, I decided to dedicate half an hour during my lunch breaks from now until I publish the book to draw the (architecture) diagrams I need.
I'll just throw them in here, hoping others find them useful.
Today: Mutable vs. immutable deployments.

Thanks for sharing. The Immutable Deployment is basically what you can do with docker image artefact based deployments.
However, the drawing tool is awesome. I did 2 architecture sketches with it today and the first time it was super fun.
this looks like a monolith vs microservice deployment to me ?
In theory, you could deploy a monolith as immutable. However, in practice, I agree with you that immutable deployments are much more often related to an architecture based on multiple, independent services.
