Microservices, is it for everyone?

JAX Magazine – August 2015

In this latest JAX Magazine issue we’ve asked a selection of our conference speakers to share some nuggets of wisdom from their talks at the conference.

From database testing and smart benchmarking to a microservices reality check and continuous delivery tips, this is a special issue for anyone looking to keep their skills on trend. We’re even going to learn what Parisian history can teach us about software architecture!
