By Vitor Calil Silva on 24-03-2020 17:05

For you to quickly get an idea of where we’re heading, here is the TL;DR version about microservices, some of its main benefits and why it’s a big thing:

  • Quickly scale and deliver new features and upgrades to market
  • Rapidly iterate to find your next business model
  • Improve and empower developer engagement

With this in mind, let’s take a step back and discuss a bit about monolithic apps, the counterpart to microservices.

By Alexander Sander on 06-11-2019 12:28

By Guest Author Alexander Sander, EU Policy Manager @ FSFE and speaker @ Open Source Lisbon 2019

Digital services offered and used by our public administrations are the critical infrastructure of 21st century democratic states.
