Moving towards microservices means moving towards distributed systems where you have to deal with latency, authorization and authentication, and messages that do not arrive, argues Sander Hoogendoorn. With microservices you can break down large systems into smaller components to regain control over the architecture.
Increased throughput, reduced code complexity, less production incidents, shorter deployment cycles and higher happiness in teams; these are some of the benefits that the agile transformation at Barclays has delivered.

We only need to tackle those that really need to be solved; develop a sense of where value lies in your business and where it’s reasonable to take risks. This will make building distributed systems much easier, Camille Fournier claimed, when interviewed by Stefan Tilkov.

Microsoft has published their guidance for creating “RESTful” APIs. Roy Fielding calls them HTTP APIs that have little to do with REST.
Versioning of Web APIs by adding a version to the URI or using versioned media types does not work on the open web. What we rather need are contracts that evolve with the changes we need, Sebastien Lambla claimed in a recent presentation, describing ways of avoiding the need to version.
Juval Löwy has pioneered a method of building service-oriented applications in which each class represents a service onto itself. While these applications may initially seem like 'class explosion', they are actually the product of a truly decomposed system; one that has been properly analyzed and designed. Juwal explains his intent and describes how development teams can improve from this process.
