Everyone is doing microservices these days - but they are no silver bullet. This talk reviews the advantages microservices bring - e.g. better modularization, many technical advantages and better support for continuous delivery. Then, the talk discusses the drawbacks, e.g. concerning operations. Finally, the talk shows several case studies with alternative approaches that provide some of the advantages, while avoiding the pitfalls. Domain-driven Design, optimizing the deployment, different approaches to modularization and self-organizing teams are important ingredients of these architectures.
