The technical definition is….microservices are design patterns to turn complex applications into simple, fine-grained, reusable, and interoperable processes that can be modified and deployed independently of each other. Ok, a bit heavy…so let’s translate that, using some mental visuals. Imagine you’re 30 years in the future and you have a great family home, Jetson’s style…
I recently wrote about what microservices were, and why they are becoming so important. In this discussion, we’ll talk about implementing microservices, as well as touch on APIs and API Management – turns out they are crucial to a microservice architecture. Just a quick note – while you may see microservice and microservice architecture used…
Don’t underestimate the impact of culture in your architecture Show Notes In the fifth episode of the API Academy’s podcast series, Ronnie Mitra and Mike Amundsen discuss why culture is important for application development. They also explore the challenges around designing and executing a supportive culture for microservices.
If you’re involved with launching new apps, you’ve likely heard of “API Security” – the need to provide a security model that protects the APIs (and corporate and customer data within them) you expose to developers for mobile/cloud/IoT integration. And yet, some of you will likely point out that applying security to your APIs can…
