SoundCloud’s architecture started as a Ruby-on-Rails monolith, which later had to be broken into microservices to cope with the growing size and complexity of the site.

Let’s assume you’ve already had every *Docker 101 tutorial* for breakfast. You’re now ready to take that brilliantly crafted application into production.

Continuous Delivery is kind of a hype word but some companies have still not fully grasped its importance and pitfalls. We talked to JAX DevOps speaker Eduards Sizovs about the role of microservices in implementing a continuous delivery pipeline and the practices companies can apply in order to stay afloat.
