This is the first article of a two article series in which we try to work from the abstract level of IoT reference architectures towards the concrete architecture and implementation for selected use cases. This first article will cover the definition of a more concrete and comprehensible architecture whereas the second part will then apply this architecture to actual use cases.
An interview with Alexander Heusingfeld and Tammo van Lessen about getting operations involved in architecture and dealing with "us vs. them" behavior when applying DevOps, how to use the Self-Contained Systems approach to modernize software systems, similarities and differences between Self-Contained Systems and microservices, improving deployment pipelines and using measurements in deployment.
