If I would have to name a single hype in software architecture land, then it would be the micro-service architecture. Microservices are supposed to be small, have a very focused purpose, can be deployed independently, are completely self-supporting and loosely coupled. Ideally, microservices are technology agnostic, but hey, we're in the .NET space, aren't we? And they are not a goal, but a means to an end. In fact, a microservice architecture has many benefits and are a great strategy for decomposing a monolith. So how do you build a microservice? What technologies does the .NET realm offer for us? And what if you don't want to deploy each service independently? In this talk, I'll show you some of the pros and cons of microservices and how you can leverage OWIN and .NET to move your monolith into a bright new future.
