What Are Microservices?
Microservices are small, autonomous services that work together. Let’s break that definition down a bit and consider the characteristics that make microservices different.
The benefits of microservices are many and varied. Many of these benefits can be laid at the door of any distributed system. Microservices, however, tend to achieve these benefits to a greater degree primarily due to how far they take the concepts behind distributed systems and service-oriented architecture.
Key benefits include:
- Technology Heterogeneity
- Ease of Deployment
- Organizational Alignment
- Optimizing for Replaceability.
About the Author
Sam Newman is a technologist at ThoughtWorks, where he currently splits his time between encouraging and sharing Innovation globally and helping design and build their internal systems. He has worked with a variety of companies in multiple domains around the world, often with one foot in the developer world, and another in the IT operations space. If you asked him what he does, he’d say ‘I work with people to build better software systems’. He has written articles, presented at conferences, and sporadically commits to open source projects. He is currently writing a book, Building Microservices, which should be available in the Autumn of this year from O'Reilly.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My only negative comments are these:
* The writing up until chapter 4 seemed somewhat dry, then picked up its pace and became more conversational. However, the earlier chapters' topics are important (and used throughout the book), so don't skip them.
* There's some jargon in the text that's unexplained. Most of it I already knew or could puzzle out, but I'm still curious what a "full-fat virtual machine" is. A glossary would have been nice.
* There are a good number of useful references (with and without URLs) that I hope to check out someday. That would be easier if there were a comprehensive list of references at the end.
Note: I'm not a fan of code- or diagram-heavy technical books on reading devices, but if I were doing it again, I'd buy the kindle version.
If you just want to get good general idea what the microservices are about, then this is the right book for you.
The author provide a lot of real world experience in the field of micro services
