I gave this presentation at Skillsmatter CloudNative eXchange 2020.
The microservice architecture is a key part of cloud native. An essential principle of the microservice architecture is loose coupling. If you ignore this principle and develop tightly coupled services the result will mostly likely be yet another “microservices failure story”. Your application will be brittle and have all of disadvantages of both the monolithic and microservice architectures.
In this talk you will learn about the different kinds of coupling and how to design loosely coupled microservices. I describe how to minimize design time and increase the productivity of your DevOps teams. You will learn how how to reduce runtime coupling and improve availability. I describe how to improve availability by minimizing the coupling caused by your infrastructure.

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.

Got a specific microservice architecture-related question? For example:
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.
