The beginnings of a pattern language for microservice architectures.

Which architecture should you choose for an application?
How to decompose an application into services?
How to maintain data consistency and implement queries?
How to publish messages as part of a database transaction?
How to make testing easier?
How to deploy an application’s services?
How to handle cross cutting concerns?
Which communication mechanisms do services use to communicate with each other and their external clients?
How do external clients communicate with the services?
How does the client of an RPI-based service discover the network location of a service instance?
How to prevent a network or service failure from cascading to other services?
How to communicate the identity of the requestor to the services that handle the request?
How to understand the behavior of an application and troubleshoot problems?
Distributed tracing - instrument services with code that assigns each external request an unique identifier that is passed between services. Record information (e.g. start time, end time) about the work (e.g. service requests) performed when handling the external request in a centralized service
Exception tracking - report all exceptions to a centralized exception tracking service that aggregates and tracks exceptions and notifies developers.
Health check API - service API (e.g. HTTP endpoint) that returns the health of the service and is intended to be pinged, for example, by a monitoring service
How to implement a UI screen or page that displays data from multiple services?
Server-side page fragment composition - build a webpage on the server by composing HTML fragments generated by multiple, business capability/subdomain-specific web applications
Client-side UI composition - Build a UI on the client by composing UI fragments rendered by multiple, business capability/subdomain-specific UI components
Microservices.io is brought to you by Chris Richardson. Experienced software architect, author of POJOs in Action, the creator of the original CloudFoundry.com, and the author of Microservices patterns.
Chris helps clients around the world adopt the microservice architecture through consulting engagements, and training workshops.
Chris teaches comprehensive workshops for architects and developers that will enable your organization use microservices effectively.
Avoid the pitfalls of adopting microservices and learn essential topics, such as service decomposition and design and how to refactor a monolith to microservices.Learn more
Chris offers numerous other resources for learning the microservice architecture.

Consider signing up for a two hour, highly focussed, consulting session.
My virtual bootcamp, distributed data patterns in a microservice architecture, is now open for enrollment!
It covers the key distributed data management patterns including Saga, API Composition, and CQRS.
It consists of video lectures, code labs, and a weekly ask-me-anything video conference repeated in multiple timezones.
The regular price is $395/person but use coupon MECNPWNR to sign up for $120 (valid until May 16th, 2023). There are deeper discounts for buying multiple seats.
Take a look at my Manning LiveProject that teaches you how to develop a service template and microservice chassis.
Engage Chris to create a microservices adoption roadmap and help you define your microservice architecture,
Use the Eventuate.io platform to tackle distributed data management challenges in your microservices architecture.
Eventuate is Chris's latest startup. It makes it easy to use the Saga pattern to manage transactions and the CQRS pattern to implement queries.
Engage Chris to conduct an architectural assessment.
