Designing loosely coupled services

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.
