Explore a variety of service-based architectures—including immensely popular microservices—in this video course from Neal Ford and Mark Richards. Through a series of instructive visuals, you’ll be able to compare and contrast these architectures in several ways, including their structure, engineering practices, and deployment. You’ll also examine the challenges of migrating from monolithic service-oriented architectures (SOA) to smaller service-based models, and the effects this change can have on team building and company culture in general.
Through the course of this video, you will:
- Learn microservice principles and the organization of its components
- Review the common engineering practices used in microservice architectures
- Examine remote-access protocols of different service-based architecture styles
- Explore microservice-testing scenarios, especially in Continuous Delivery environments
- Manage shared components between services, and define your level of service granularity
- Learn about governance: how to identify, curate, and manage service architectures
- Use well-defined steps to migrate from a large SOA to a service-based architecture
- Consider hybrid service-based architectures that fall between microservices and SOAs
- Understand microservices with regard to Conway’s Law on team size and organization

About the O’Reilly Software Architecture Series
Clearing a path from developer to architect and enriching that path once you arrive.
Software architecture is a fast-moving, multidisciplinary subject where entire suites of "best practices" become obsolete practically overnight. No single path or curriculum exists, and different types of architecture—application, integration, enterprise—require different subject emphasis. Whether you’re at the outset of a career as an architect or in the midst of such a career, series editor Neal Ford has curated this collection of tools and guides for aspiring and seasoned architects alike.
