This is a presentation that I gave today at the O’Reilly Software Architecture Superstream: Software Architecture Patterns. The talk’s focus is the microservices pattern language. However, it also shows how thinking with the pattern mindset - context/problem/forces/solution/consequences - leads to better technical decisions.
The microservices architecture offers tremendous benefits, but it’s not a silver bullet. It also has some significant drawbacks. The microservices pattern language — a collection of patterns that solve architecture, design, development, and operational problems — enables software developers to apply the microservices architecture effectively. I provide an overview of the microservices architecture and examines the motivations for the pattern language, then takes you through the key patterns in the pattern language.
The video is available on O’Reilly Safari.
I provide consulting and training to help organizations use the microservice architecture effectively.
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.
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 KGBJMRAM to sign up for $195 (valid until March 8th, 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.
Chris offers numerous resources for learning the microservice architecture.
Chris teaches comprehensive workshops, training classes and bootcamps for executives, architects and developers to help 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.
Delivered in-person and remotely.

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.
