About the Technology

Invest your time in designing great applications, improving infrastructure, and making the most out of your dev teams. Microservices are easier to write, scale, and maintain than traditional enterprise applications because they're built as a system of independent components. Master a few important new patterns and processes, and you'll be ready to develop, deploy, and run production-quality microservices.
