  • Amazing stuff

    I'm glad it can be done this way in smaller-than-biggest-unicorns scale. I like how everything is code, so even "API first" is in fact coding (JSON) and it gets built (validated). The presentation was really nice and informative, but I didn't find one thing there - how to deal with any complex domain logic. Most of the things shown were from CRUD domain. But boy, it was still no-fuss CRUD - and I liked that!

    What I often fight with when it comes to microservices (or DDD on the other hand) is how to do performant queries with joins and how to perform nontrivial non-CRUD updates into database. I'm sure it must start with DB redesign, not just with building services over existing (slightly partitioned) database our monolith ran on before.
