What experts say about Evolutionary Architecture in this eBook
Former Senior Engineering Manager at LinkedIn
Head of Architecture at BBC
“Scaling isn’t just providing your product offering to a growing number of customers. The key insight in scaling is that you need to understand the nature of how your users are accessing your product.”
“Do not make too many individual nanoservices because they become hard to reason about. Ultimately, it is about getting the balance right. Smaller units of logic are more flexible and safer to deploy. But smaller services also mean there are more of them to manage.””
