JSJ 479: Practical Microservices with Ethan Garofolo

Ethan Garofolo is the author of Practical Microservices with Pragmatic Programmers. He starts out debunking the ideas behind pulling parts of a monolith into a different services and change function calls into HTTP calls. Instead, it's an approach that keeps things moving for development teams that solves several productivity issues. He breaks down the ways to move functionality around and which approaches make sense for breaking your application up into pieces that are easy to work on and approachable for multiple teams.
