Microservices cannot be simply ‘wired up’ with some basic technical knowledge about what constitutes a Microservice Architecture. There is more to a Microservice Architecture than developing isolated and unique services with a blueprint like set of architectural artifacts. Successfully understanding microservices requires a paradigm shift no less radical than moving from a procedural to an object oriented programming language. Microservice Architecture is not just technical but also a new business philosophy rooted in antifragility, freedom, and flattened power structures. This book will take you on an expedition to a yet to be fully explored ‘planet’ with a divergent philosophical underpinning that is completely alien to some technologists. Our voyage of discovery will be traveling through a landscape that is unrecognizable. If it were not for the historical map that explains the origins of this empowering technical perspective most would be disoriented at the outset of the voyage. Traveling to this new land of freedom requires that explorers not take any neat and tidy preconceptions with them - come along without any baggage. This book will challenge how you view technology to the core of your being. When you have finished this journey all that you believe and cherish from a technical standpoint will be cast aside.
